St Albans City have announced the arrival of 26-year-old striker Antonio German to Clarence Park.
The experienced frontman, who has featured for neighbours Hemel Hempstead this season, has an impressive number of Football League clubs on his CV and will help bring additional firepower to Ian Allinson’s squad as the Saints gear up for a Vanarama National League South play-off push.
German started his footballing journey by progressing through the youth ranks at QPR before reaching 22 league appearances for the Loftus Road side. Short loan spells at Aldershot, Southend, and Yeovil Town followed before securing a permanent move to Stockport County where he enjoyed 16 league outings for the Hatters in the 2011/12 season.
German returned south a year later and featured for Brentford, Gillingham and Aldershot Town for a second spell. A change of scenery was next on Antonio’s agenda as he made the bold move to the sub-continent to spearhead the attack for Indian Premier League side Kerala Blasters where he contributed six goals in the 17 league games over two seasonal spells.
The 26-year-old striker has already faced the Saints twice this season as part of the festive double-header between City and Hemel Hempstead but left Vauxhall Road shortly afterwards.
