Skrill South club Staines Town have added a new face to their forward line for the New Year, in experienced striker…..

….Calum Willock, who is a full international for the Caribbean island nation of St Kitts & Nevis.

At 32, he will add some valuable experience to a young Swans squad. Best known for spells at Peterborough United and Brentford, he started at Fulham where he played in the Premier League in 2000, and has amassed over 150 League appearances with QPR, Bristol Rovers, Peterborough, and Port Vale.

Willock continued his success with Conference clubs Stevenage Borough, Crawley Town, Cambridge United, Ebbsfleet United (where his prolific scoring helped secure promotion to the Premier Division), and Dover Athletic.

He started this season with Boreham Wood, he dual registered with Harrow Borough while overcoming an injury, and is now fully match fit and available for immediate selection.

Staines manager Marcus Gayle commented: “Calum is just what we need, providing a target up front and bringing his extensive knowledge of the game to our side.”

Willock played against Staines for Harrow in the recent Middlesex Senior Cup tie, and the club amicably secured his release from both them and Boreham Wood ahead of registering him on Monday.

As part of the deal with Harrow, two members of Swans’ first-team squad will be signing for the Ryman Premier club.

Defender Qaseem Sotonwa and striker Oluwale Akinsanya will have the opportunity to gain good quality experience and will also remain available for the Swans.
