On Tuesday we announced that former Welling United, AFC Wimbledon, Torquay United & Kingstonian winger Toby Ajala joined us and he came on at half time in our 3-0 win over Greenwich Borough that evening.

He comes in for Ambrose Gnahore, who has left to join a club on trial in Poland and we wish him the best of luck.

Manager Gary Alexander said:

“I played with Toby at AFC Wimbledon when he was a young lad, and he is somebody I’ve always kept an eye on. He’s played a lot of football higher up the ladder and hopefully can come in add something to the squad. I’m sure he will, it was a case of getting in touch with him as Ambrose has decided to pursue a trial in Poland and I couldn’t afford to wait around. That’s football and that’s life, so I wish Ambrose every success. He wants to play higher and has opted to take a trial so good luck to him out there.”

As well as Ajala, we also saw defender Mo Kamara come in on Tuesday evening in the Greenwich match, and he looked solid at the back as we saw Josh Wisson move back into midfield. Mo was released from Greenwich that very day and came straight into the starting XI.

Gary Alexander said:

“Mo Kamara was told he had been released and it’s the position we have been looking to add competition to in our squad for quite some time. On last night’s (Tuesday’s) showing Mo will do that. He’s also a young man who wants a football career so it’s up to him to put in performances like that last night where he set a good standard and hopefully he can raise that and help us win football matches.”

Finally, striker Matt Day has joined SCEFL side Sheppey United on a dual-registration joining goalkeeper Aaron Lee-Wharton who has been putting in some fine performances of late. Matt has made 13 appearances for the Nuts & Bolts this season.

The gaffer said:

“Matt’s a young lad who needs to be playing mens football regularly and having been out injured for quite a while he’s found it tough to break into the squad. When he has played he’s done well but needs more minutes in order to get back to his best. Hopefully he goes to Sheppey and gets his match fitness back up, scores goals and comes back giving me a selection headache.”
