Vanarama Conference South club Concord Rangers have signed former West Ham United defender Cheye Alexander.

Whilst on the books of his childhood favourites West Ham, the young right-back was diagnosed with Osgood-Schlatter disease – an irritation of the patellar ligament that causes acute pain in the knees.

Alexander experienced a growth spurt during his final year as a schoolboy – a common cause for the condition.

He spent virtually the whole of the 2011/12 season playing through pain for the Hammers’ under-16 side. But, after a frustrating year, he forced his way into the club’s Barclays Under-18 Premier League side and was eyeing his first professional contract.

However, his dreams were shattered when his beloved Hammers released him at the end of the 2012/13 season, but he was offered another chance of making it as a professional with Port Vale.

He spent virtually the second part of last season on loan with Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division side Ilkeston FC, but when he was released by Vale at the end of last season, he decided to return south.
