Eduino Vaz makes U’s switch

4 June 2024

We are delighted to confirm the signing of Eduino Vaz from National League South side Aveley, joining on a one-year deal with the option of an extension.

The young left back arrives at the VBS Community Stadium looking to make the step up to step one of non-league football, having already amassed nearly 100 appearances at sixth tier level for Chelmsford City and Aveley.

Born in the West African country Guinea-Bissau, Vaz began his career with the former and made 50 appearances for the Clarets, impressing with his marauding runs and mature defending since making the step up from the club’s reserves during the 2021/22 season.

His form saw him pen a new deal ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, but he had caught the attention of numerous scouts and made the move to League One side Barnsley during the subsequent January transfer window.

After seven months in the Tykes’ youth team, Vaz would be on the move once more in search of first team football, returning to the National League South when he joined Aveley in August 2023. The 22-year old would appear 44 times in all competitions for the Millers and scored five goals from left back, as well as playing 90 minutes in the play-off eliminator round against Maidstone United, contributing an assist as the Millers’ hopes of a third successive promotion were ended.

Steve Morison was particularly excited after capturing Vaz’s signature, claiming “Eduino is a forward thinking left back who has produced excellent numbers in the National League South and I’m excited to see him produce this for us.”

“He had taste of a higher level with Barnsley when he was young and he’s still at a great age to learn and get better. I can’t wait to get to work with him on the training ground so that we can help him grow as a player and grow with us a football team.”

Welcome to Sutton United, Eduino Vaz!
