The signing was completed in time for him to be eligible to play in the Diamonds’ game at Olney Town on Saturday.
Newman is a 20-year old striker with UCL experience playing for Wellingborough Whitworth and Sileby.
Last season playing for Whitworths he scored twenty-seven goals for the Flourmen, including picking up the March player of the month award when he netted ten goals in four games during that month. In the previous season he went on a run of scoring in seven consecutive games for the Flourmen.
Newman said: “I am delighted to say I have joined for AFC because it means I am playing for the biggest name and biggest fan base in the UCL, the only way for the club is onwards and upwards.
“Having seen the plan, and how well the team has started, I know that the management are honest and they clearly know what they are doing. My aim is to fire Diamonds into the UCL Premier and higher, with the same if not better scoring record I had at Whitworths last year. I cannot wait to play in front of the biggest crowd I have ever played in front of week in week out!”
Manager Mark Starmer commented that Newman will add to the strength of the side and complete the signings at this stage of the season.
