Former Arsenal youngster Anthony Jeffrey, who played in Tuesday's friendly at Dartford, has joined from Forest Green Rovers after a season-long loan at Boreham Wood.
Paul Doswell was delighted to announce the signing of 22 year-old Jeffrey,on a one year contract. "Anthony was the one we were waiting for and I'm delighted he's agreed to sign. There was significant interest from League 2 and National League clubs but we've sold him the vision of the club and explained that a season such as Rory and Max had can help him achieve his ambitions. He has been training with the group since the start of pre-season and played against Dartford and has fitted in really well. He brings the searing pace that we wanted and will also be a goal threat. With Jeffrey Monokana, Kieran Cadogen and Moses Emannuel we have a nice variety of wide players who all offer a different threat."
Anthony was also delighted to sign. "The gaffer has been very persistent since the end of last season and it's nice to finally commit to the club. He's passionate about Sutton and after being here since July 1st and seeing the whole set up and a great group of players it became an easy decision to make. I had many offers but this feels right on all levels and I can't wait to get going"
In other news, Paul is potentially looking at a loan goalkeeper after Ross Worner injured his knee whilst out running on Sunday evening. "Ross is having a scan today, and we will update his situation once more is known. Other injuries to Dean Beckwith(calf), Louis John(hamstring), Simon Walton( bruised kneecap), Simon Downer(ankle op back September) and Bradley Hudson-Odoi(Achilles op back in September) have left us short, particularly in the Centre Half positions, but Jack Jebb should be fit to travel tomorrow after missing Dartford due to a niggling calf injury."
After the game against Havant the team spend four days at Bisham Abbey to continue their preparations for the new season.
