Ian Allinson has today unveiled two strikers to help spearhead the City attack for the new season.
Chid Onokwai arrives having spent last season with Haringey Borough where he scored ten goals in ten games before injury halted that run last November. Upon his return earlier this year he began to recapture his form only for the season to be cut short due to the ongoing pandemic.
The towering striker also enjoyed a spell with FC Romania prior to his arrival at Coles Park, netting over 30 times in that period and firmly cementing himself as one of the most feared strikers outside the national league.
Also arriving at Clarence Park is Joseph Chidyausiku who was previously at Chelmsford City. The Young forward has been training with former Saints striker Junior Morias prior to the move and impressed during this period. Joe has also enjoyed spells at Bracknell Town, Bradford Park Avenue, Havant & Waterlooville and Romford before finally signing for the Saints this week.
City manager Ian Allinson spoke of his desire for more competition in the forward areas and believes his two new acquisitions will help provide just that.
“Both of these players are very keen to learn and whilst they already have a certain performance level, we’re hoping they can really flourish at the club with quality players around them”.
“Chid is a proven goalscorer and I’m confident he can make the step up to really make his mark. He’s tall, strong but more importantly I believe he brings a desire and he’ll be a real handful for defenders, make no mistake”.
“With regards to Joseph, he’s another young lad who comes highly thought of and we looked at his attributes and believed he’s got talent that we can nurture and improve”.
“He didn’t really get a look-in at Chelmsford but considering he was behind Leroy Lita, Shaun Jeffers and Sam Higgins then it was only really to be expected. Rod Stringer still speaks highly of him and he’s a player I’m happy to have at the club”.
We welcome both players to Clarence Park and look forward to seeing them in action.
