AFC Telford United have announced the signing of young forward Daniel Udoh.
The 21-year-old, who spent the final period of last season on loan at Leamington, has plenty of experience of the National League having previously enjoyed successful spells at Kidderminster, Worcester City, Halesowen, Chester and Ilkeston. Born in Nigeria, Udoh moved to England with his family at the age of 9 and spent time in the youth system at Luton Town and Stevenage. He was also called up to play for the Nigeria’s Under-17 side.
It was at Ilkeston that his form came to the attention of Crewe, who signed him on a two-year contract. Last season he spent a successful loan spell at Halesowen Town, where he scored 7 goals, before going on to sign for Leamington.
He then scored 5 goals in 9 appearances, including a goal for the Brakes in the Bucks’ 3-2 win over Leamington back in April.
Boss Gavin Cowan said: “I’m very happy to get this deal over the line. Daniel has been courted by numerous clubs in our division having made an impact at Leamington last season.
“He is a real coup and one our fans should be really excited about as he’s young, extremely talented and is eager to make an impact at the Bucks Head!”
