Vanarama National League club Woking have announced the signing of Richard Orlu.

Orlu, 28, is a central defender who started his career at Staines Town.

He had loan spells at Harrow Borough, Walton Casuals and Northwood before breaking into the Swans first-team in 2010, where he played against the Cards.

In December 2011, he signed for Farnborough, then in the Conference (National League) South, before joining Canvey Island for the start of the 2012/13 season where he started every match, picking up six man of the match awards for the Gulls.

He earned a move to Dover Athletic in the summer of 2013, becoming a regular in the side during the second half of the season, and helped the Whites achieve promotion to the National League.

Orlu commented on his move to the Cards: “The style and set-up of Woking at the moment, the ambition of the club, it really suited what I wanted and the changes I wanted to make to improve. I want to improve, I want to push on, I wanted that new challenge and Woking I felt was a very good place for that new challenge.”

New Woking manager Anthony Limbrick said: “Richard is experienced at this level and most of all he is a winner. I felt his style fitted our philosophy and I’m excited to work with players who are hungry and have a desire to develop”.
