Inih Effiong Signs for Chesham United
Rather than throw in the proverbial towel after last weekend's FA Trophy exit, Chesham United and manager Andy Leese have come out guns blazing this week in an attempt to get the league season back on track. Following the announcement earlier this week that Rob Bartley and John Kyriacou have been re-signed, today the signing was completed of striker Inih Effiong, who played on loan for the club at the end of last season and many believe could have been the difference between promotion and missing out in the play-offs, had he not been recalled by Boreham Wood.
Manager Andy Leese said: "“I am pleased to advise that we have today agreed a deal with Boreham Wood FC to sign Inih Effiong on a permanent basis. Inih is familiar to all at Chesham after his successful loan spell with us last season, and the chance to sign him was one we could not pass up. We have struggled to score regularly this season, and I am sure Inih will give us a lift in that regard. He is still only 21, hungry to play games and to go further in the game. It has been a busy week with JK and Bobby returning to the club, and I am very grateful to the Chairman and Roger Payne for their support in getting these deals done. We are also grateful to all at Boreham Wood FC for their patience and willingness in getting the transfer completed in time for Inih to feature in our Christmas games. The squad is looking more competitive than it did last week, and the arrival of 3 new familiar faces will boost everyone around the club as we seek to get the season back on track.”
The contract sees Inih sign for the club until the end of the 2013/14 season, and shows the ambition of the club to continue with its aim to push for promotion to Conference South.
