Vanarama National League South club Wealdstone have signed former Boeham Wood striker Mustafa Tiryaki

Tiryaki left Wood and joined Turkish side Manisa Büyüksehir Belediye Spor Kulübü in January 2016 for an undisclosed fee.

He signed for the Wood as a free agent in September 2015 and made a scoring debut in the victory away to Torquay United.

Due to a lack of fitness and niggling injuries, he only managed ten appearances for the club, scoring twice.

Tiryaki started his career at Maidenhead United back in 2008, scoring 10 goals in twenty appearances.

His form though had caught the eye of several clubs and although he had options for his signature, he opted to sign for Havant & Waterlooville.

He remained with the Hampshire outfit for two years, finding the net 23 times in seventy-five games.

Tiryaki then made a move up the footballing ladder, by signing for the then Football League club Tranmere Rovers in 2011.

Following the expiration of his Tranmere contract. he secured a big money move to Turkey, firstly spending two seasons with 1461 Trazpon, scoring 11 times in fifty-four appearances, and then moving to Goztepe in 2014, but after spending a year with them he returned to the UK.

Tiryaki spent the entirety of the 2015 summer training and playing with the Luton Town`a first-team squad, featuring in a number of friendlies.

In one such game he impressed then-Boreham Wood boss Ian Allinson while playing against his side for Luton and he eventually signed him two months later.
