Darlington’s new signing Omar Holness says that he is really excited at the prospect of making his debut against Chester on Saturday.

Midfielder Holness, who has turned 25 this week, has just finished playing for Bethlehem Steel in Philadelphia in the USA, after previously playing for Real Salt Lake and Real Monarchs, picking up plenty of experience in Major League Soccer along the way, and seeing the vast arenas in the USA. He has now signed on a permanent basis for Darlington.

He has also been capped twice for Jamaica, at various levels all the way through to senior.

“I’m definitely excited to get my first stint in English football,” he said. “and I’m really excited to join the club, the team and the wonderful supporters.

“I’ve played for Real Salt Lake, Real Monarchs in Utah and for Bethlehem Steel in Philadelphia, and I’m looking to carry the experience I’ve had from over there in the States to Darlington.”
