Blue Square Bet North club Bishop`s Stortford have been busy ahead of Saturday`s big kick-off and the latest to join….
……the Blues are experienced striker Cliff Akurang and young goalkeeper Luke Chambers.
Ajurang is a renowned striker who started in Chelsea and Luton Town’s youth teams before settling at Chesham United in the Ryman League.
He moved to Hitchin Town in 2000/01 from where Thurrock picked him up and his 104 games saw him net thirty-eight goals over four years.
A further twenty-four strikes in sixteen outings at Heybridge Swifts alerted Dagenham & Redbridge, who took him on loan and eventually made him a fixture in their 2006/07 Conference National title-winning side.
A short spell back on loan at Thurrock was succeeded by a goal in every other game for Histon in the Conference again in 2007/08.
He returned to Football League action with Barnet between 2008 and 2010, the second year largely being spent at Rushden & Diamonds on loan, and he also appeared for Weymouth.
His return to the semi-professional game saw him spend more time with Thurrock and he spent the majority of 2010/11 with Maidenhead United.
He switched to Braintree Town and helped them to the Conference South title before joining Chelmsford City in June 2011.
City released him at the end of last season.
Chambers arrives on a month`s loan from npower League Two side Southend United.
The 18-year-old first year professional has been allowed out following the arrival of Bury keeper Cameron Belford on a one-month loan deal.
Former Arsenal trainee Chambers is yet to make a first-team appearance since he signed a professional deal in the summer.
