AFC Sudbury manager Jamie Godbold has added physicality to his attack after completing the signing of Angolan striker, Lheureux Menga.

The 31-year-old has previously played for Dagenham & Redbridge, Worksop Town, Welling United, Witham Town and East Thurrock United, and spent last season with Grays Athletic and Harrow Borough.

”He is a big, strong, aggressive, centre forward who will add some experience to our young squad, whilst being able to compliment our other attacking players,” said Godbold.

“He had a good goal scoring record for Grays last season and I was impressed with his desire to improve and do well for AFC next season.”

Menga is joined at the club by midfielder Jake Turner who won a Ryman North title-winning medal with Brightlingsea Regent and was named as the Essex club’s Supporters’ Player of the Year.
