Having strengthened defence and midfield, Ebbsfleet United boss Garry Hill has turned his attention to the front line and signed Josh Umerah.

The 22-year-old Catford-born player spent 11 years at Charlton Athletic, breaking into the first-team squad and appearing in the Championship in 2015/16.

He was top scorer for Charlton’s U18s in the 2014/15 campaign, being instrumental as the Addicks youngsters won their Professional Development League 2 that season.

Temporary spells over the next few seasons at Kilmarnock in the SPL and then Wycombe Wanderers preceded a season-long loan in the National League in 2018/19 with Boreham Wood, where he struck six goals from 16 starts.

The 6ft 1in frontman has already played alongside his new strike partner Gozie Ugwu for Boreham Wood last season.
