r Matt Doughty has further strengthened his attacking options by snapping up one-time Stoke City youth striker Tomi Adeloye.

Sidcup-born Adeloye, who turns 21 next month, came through the academy ranks at Charlton Athletic and Millwall before joining Stoke, where he made his mark as a prolific finisher for the under-18 team.

He had a loan spell with Macclesfield Town during his time at Stoke, and when he moved on to Chelmsford City in September, 2015, he marked his debut with two goals in a 5-2 win over Concord Rangers in the National League South, one a poacher’s finish from close range and the other a free-kick from distance.

He made a scoring start for Leatherhead against Grays Athletic last August, after being signed by then-manager Jimmy Bullard a few weeks earlier, but was more recently training with Chester FC, prior to Alty boss Doughty stepping in and bringing him to The J.Davidson Stadium.

Provided the signing receives FA and league approval, Adeloye will be available for tomorrow`s game against Gainsborough Trinity at The J.Davidson Stadium.
