New United arrival Kelsey Mooney says former Aston Villa team-mate Jacob Bedeau helped encourage his move to the Sands Venue Stadium.
"I spoke to Jacob and he sold it to me really well, saying how nice it is here and it was a no brainer for me really," he told iFollow Iron.
The 21-year-old signed a one-year deal and explained the type of striker that he is, saying: "I'd say I'm a typical 'Number 9' type of striker who likes to do a bit of everything - hold-up play, getting in behind and overall just scoring goals."
The son of Watford legend Tommy Mooney, he continued: "I'd like to think of myself as my own player, but I've taken a few things from him and will try and do what I can. The target ultimately is to score goals and get promoted."
Mooney has experience of League Two from a loan spell at Cheltenham Town the season before last, and he feels well equipped to make an impact in the division following a successful spell of playing men's football at Hereford United last season.
He explained: "I was at Villa for 12 years and joined them when I was eight. I had a loan spell at Cheltenham, and did okay. I enjoyed my time there, and had different managers, but I enjoyed the division and thought I could cope well. This was when I was younger as well and hadn't played as much men's football, so I'm hoping to thrive this season.
"I left Villa two years ago and had a tough year, but I ended up at Hereford in non-league and did well there, and that's what's brought this opportunity up.
"I think I can fit in well here and the aim is to carry on scoring goals and see where we can get to. I've tried to do what I can during lockdown but I'm buzzing to get back going."
