Vanarama National League South club Wealdstone have swooped to sign experienced striker Bradley Bubb from National League side Ebbsfleet United.

Manager Bobby Wilkinson’s persistence in pursuing the 29-year-old prolific forward finally paid off and an eighteen-month deal for the player was completed on the eve of the massive Buildbase FA Trophy clash at Billericay Town tomorrow. Bubb is not cup tied and is eligible for selection.

Harrow-born Bubb was on the books of Queens Park Rangers as a youth, prior to averaging more than a goal every other game for Chalfont St Peter and Beaconsfield SYCOB before moving to Farnborough Town in 2009.

He helped them to promotion from the Southern League and was a key part of Boro’s run to the Conference (National League) South play-off final in 2010/11.

Forty goals in eighty-eight games for Farnborough earned him a move into the EFL with Aldershot Town in the summer of 2011 and he also featured amongst the goals for Eastleigh and then with Woking on a long-term loan.

After a brief spell in Belgium with Royal Antwerp playing under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Bubb moved back to Aldershot and then on to Havant & Waterlooville in 2014.

He then enjoyed a very successful time at Oxford City , scoring 24 times in all competitions and winning the supporters` player of the year award.

A scorer of over 200 goals in his club career to date, Bubb is a Grenadian international having collected ten caps in the CONCACAF Gold Cup and Caribbean Cup.

Bubb was hampered by an injury at Fleet last year but has since returned to full fitness
