Paul Doswell has confirmed his final Sutton United signing of the summer, with Jonah Ayunga signing a two-year deal with the club.
“We are really pleased with Jonah signing, as we were really looking for another young forward who we could develop and improve and Jonah certainly fits the bill. He reminds me of the Tommy Wright and Josh Taylor profile of young players that are hungry to do well and are prepared to work very hard to succeed.
“He certainly impressed us on Saturday and has also trained very well in the last two weeks since pre-season started. He’s 6’3″, quick and has had a good grounding at Brighton, including a valuable loan spell in the Irish premier league last season.
“David Hughes once again has proved invaluable in making this deal happen, as he understands the culture of our club and feels Jonah can progress quickly with Sutton United. By signing a two-year deal it gives Jonah the chance to really develop and we think with Bairdy’s influence he can be a great addition to our squad.”
Ayunga was also delighted to sign a two-year deal with the club: “I got a phone call from the gaffer on Monday afternoon after training and was buzzing to know that he wanted me, and what he feels I can achieve here. I’ve really enjoyed my two weeks here and can’t wait to help the team this season.”
