Malaysian international Junior Eldstål has linked up with Met Police for the business end of the season.

The ex-Aldershot and Reading youth player comes out of a short spell of retirement to join the Blues and can play at the back or in midfield. The 27-year-old said:

“Been an easy transition, everyone at the club has welcomed me with open arms. Nice to be back in a changing room full of hungry aspiring players.

“With the squad being so young it’s nice to see the desire and passion and you can see that in the way they play. It is a club that wants to play football and build.

“The reason for my retirement was to come home and run my own business, a tech start-up launching an app at the end of the year. i know Max Blackmore at the club, and to be honest, he persuaded me to get my boots back on and join the club.

“I spoke to Gavin who has great targets and goals for the club. I am a born winner and my competitive side is still embedded in me and after speaking to Gavin it was a no-brainer.

“Both him and Nursey are the type of leaders I like to play under. I want to be part of something big at the club.

“We are currently in the playoffs and still in it to be title contenders. Let’s take it game by game and keep working hard.”
