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.

The brother of former Leiston and Sudbury man Darren, said: “I am thrilled to have signed for AFC and as soon as I knew the club were interested I just wanted the move to happen.
“I have had a great time at Maldon & Tiptree and made some really close friends, but just felt it was time for a new challenge.
“Thanks to (Maldon manager) Kevin Horlock, Mark Levey, Steve Southgate and everyone at the club for their support over the time I was there and thanks also to chairman Ed Garty and everyone else behind the scenes at Maldon & Tiptree.
“I wish everyone at the club the best of luck in the future.
“I’m really looking forward to the new season with AFC and can’t wait for the pre-season games to start.”
