Yemi Odubade has signed for Maidstone United.

The striker parted company with league rivals Eastleigh a week ago after three years with the Hampshire club. During that time he made 136 appearances and scored 22 goals.

He made a name for himself while playing for Eastbourne Town in the Sussex County League at the turn of the century. His tally of more than 70 goals over two seasons attracted the attention of Yeovil who signed him for the 2004/05 campaign.

After finding opportunities limited at Huish Park, he moved to Eastbourne Borough in February 2005. Clearly a lucky town for him, his goalscoring prowess saw Oxford United make an offer and he signed at the start of the 2006/07 season.

By the time he moved to Stevenage in 2009, Odubade had played on 135 occasions, and was the side’s top scorer in 2007/08 with 11 goals.

While at Boro he went on loan to Newport County and following his departure from the Lamex, he signed for Gateshead in 2011 before joining Eastleigh in 2013.
