CONCORD RANGERS have signed striker Jordan Chiedozie for the new season.

The 20-year-old, who has recently been on trial at Southend United, will go straight into the squad to face Bath City on Saturday.

The ex-Bournemouth forward made an immediate impression for Concord, finding the net within ten minutes of a trial game at Maidstone United last month.

He then spent several games with Southend, before returning to Concord and signing a deal today.

Beachboys boss Danny Cowley said it was a brilliant signing.

“We are very pleased to have him,” he said. “We know what a clinical finisher he is and he looks really sharp in training. There was a lot of interest in him and I have no doubt he will do well for us."
