Bishop’s Stortford have added Mikel Suarez to their squad as boss Rod Stringer prepares for the new Conference South season.

Suarez finished last season in the Conference Premier with Dartford having joined them from Tonbridge Angels in late January.

The 27-year-old Spanish forward took only 13 minutes to open his account for the Blues when he hit the winner in last Thursday’s 1-0 home win against AFC Hornchurch.

Bilbao-born Suarez started his English career at Loughborough University before joining Boston United for the 2009/10 season where he helped them gain promotion to Conference North. He remained with the Pilgrims until midway through the following season when he joined Worksop Town having scored 12 goals in 57 appearances for the Pilgrims.

He moved south to join Tonbridge for the 2011/12 season and while he was with the Kent side he made national headlines when ended up in intensive care in a coma after a clash of heads with team-mate Lee Browning.

He was able to walk off the pitch during the 4-1 defeat at Farnborough but was later sick in the dressing room. He spent over a week in hospital before being discharged.

He spent a period on loan with Hastings United as he recovered from the injury before returning to the Angels.
