Chelmsford City have confirmed the signings of Jake Jessup and Jonny Giles.

Jessup, a former Norwich United goalkeeper, joins the Clarets having completed a successful trial with Rod Stringer’s Chelmsford side.
The tall goalkeeper appeared in each of City’s pre-season matches, as well as completing a full set of ninety minutes against Thurrock and Bishop’s Stortford.

Also making the move to the Melbourne Community Stadium is 23-year-old Jonny Giles. The young winger spent the second half of last season on-loan at Aldershot Town in the Vanarama National League from Oxford United.

Giles originally joined Oxford United after impressing on-trial after completing a Degree in Physics and went on to make nine appearances for the Shots as they reached the play-offs.

Speaking after completing the deal for Giles, City boss Rod Stringer said: “Jonny has a lot of quality top-end.
“I think he’ll be a good player for us and it gives us a lot of competitions. It makes us a bit more of a threat out wide.

“I’m sure he’ll be a good addition for us but, like every other playr, he has to prove himself to get that shirt.”
