Daniel Ajakaiye signs for Kingstonian
Talented and lightning quick forward returns to the red and white hoops.
Kingstonian Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Daniel Ajakaiye.
Many of our supporters will remember the popular striker from his period with the Club in 2017. Having left after a short spell at Kingstonian, Daniel went on to be a great success at Hastings United before coming to the attention of Paul Doswell at Havant & Waterlooville.
"I'm delighted to have signed such an outstanding prospect," enthused Manager Hayden Bird. "Daniel fits the profile of striker we need for this team perfectly. He is quick, plays with great movement and scores goals. In losing Corie we needed to add goals to the team. In signing Daniel, I'm confident we have achieved exactly that."
"I'd like to go on record in thanking Havant & Waterlooville and Daniel's Agent John Kimbell, who have been of great assistance in this transfer."
The Manager went on to confirm his new signing will be in the squad for Saturday's pre-season opener at the Meadowbank. "Yes, Daniel will definitely be in the squad and like all of the new players, I'm looking forward to seeing him settle into the Kingstonian team".
"There is no doubting Saturday's game is a tough way to start our pre-season friendlies. I look at Dorking Wanderers as a National League Club as in my opinion, it was only the decision to 'Null & Void' the League which prevented Marc's team winning promotion."
"I'm really pleased with our pre-season programme," Hayden continued. "The fixtures will test us and that is what the players need as we approach a very competitive league campaign. With regard to Saturday's squad, Fabio is a doubt having suffered an impact injury last week. The only other question is the physical condition of Shaney, who has been side-lined with a slight groin strain. I'm confident he will be be fit though."
The Manager also confirmed that included in the Match Day Squad will be Jason Banton, Nyren Clunis, Rhys Murrell-Williamson, Bryant Akono Bilongo, Aaron Lamont, Kershaney Samuels and Daniel Ajakaiye.
A limited number of tickets are still available from Dorking Wanderers. Please purchase your tickets urgently to avoid disappointment.
Saturday 3rd July is Day 1 for the Class of 21/22!
Come and meet them at The Meadowbank!
