St Albans City have bolstered their strike-force with the addition of dynamic striker David Moyo from neighbours Hemel Hempstead Town.
Moyo who started his career with Northampton Town and despite turning professional with the Cobblers, found first-team opportunities limited and in January 2015 joined Brackley Town after a brief loan spell at St James Park.
The young forward featured almost 100 times for the club before moving to Hemel last summer but again found it tough to establish an extended run of games at Vauxhall Road despite some blistering performances.
Moyo has featured for the Saints numerous times during the pre-season period with City manager Ian Allinson and Tudors counterpart Dean Brennan working hard to conclude a deal which brings the coveted front man to Clarence Park on a permanent move.
“This is a real boost for us to get David on board after what has been an impressive summer within the camp,” said Allinson.
“I’ve no doubt he would have had other offers but fair play to the lad – he’s worked really hard during the short time he’s been with us and made it very clear that he wants to play football for St Albans City.”
Club Secretary Tom Norman has yet again praised the clubs Boost the Budget (BTB) scheme which has helped engineer the transfer.
“We have to thank everyone at Hemel Hempstead for their cooperation and the timescales they’ve worked within but also to ‘Stand By Your Saints’ and another vital contribution from the BTB initiative.
“Once again it shows the importance of the scheme and what the supporters are doing behind the scenes for the football club with both Ian and myself extending our sincere thanks for their continued support, without which – this transfer would not have happened.”
