Sutton United have signed much-travelled Guyana international midfielder Chris Nurse for a second spell at Gander Green Lane.

The 32-year-old joined Puerto Rico Football Club – managed by former Portsmouth and Orient defender Adrian Whitbread – for its inaugural season in the North American Soccer League in March 2016.

Nurse was well known to Puerto Rico as he was a success during previous spells with the Puerto Rico Islanders FC.

He has twice been a champion at this level and also was a runner up in the NASL final with Fort Lauderdale Strikers in 2014.

While playing for FC Edmonton, he not only was voted team MVP by his peers, he also was nominated for the NASL Humanitarian of the Year award for his non-stop efforts in raising money in support of breast cancer awareness.

In addition to his club success, he has amassed forty-seven international caps for Guyana, serving as captain for many of those matches, scoring 5 times.

Before embarking on a full-time career over the Atlantic, Nurse started out with Kingstonian before signing briefly for Sutton for the first time in 2003.

He has also had spells with Aldershot Town, Moor Green (Solihull Moors), Hinckley United, Tamworth, Stevenage Borough, Halesowen Town and AFC Telford United.
