Dowse adds Christian Jolley to his squad

Nick Shaw - 13th June 2018
Woking Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Christian Jolley.

Christian, 30, is a winger who started his career at Oxted and District before earning a trial at Kingstonian when Dowse was manager there. He signed a contract in December 2009, breaking into the first team with the K's narrowly missing out on promotion via the play-offs that season.

In the Summer of 2010 he joined AFC Wimbledon, with the Dons' winning promotion to the Football League via the play-offs. Christian signed a new contract there in July 2011. The attacking player joined Newport County on loan in November 2012, scoring 5 league goals in only 4 league games, he was then recalled by AFC Wimbledon. In January 2013 he signed for Newport County on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee. Newport reached the play-off final that season, Christian scoring the first goal in their 2-0 victory against Wrexham and being named in the 2012/13 Team of the Year.

He joined Forest Green Rovers on a one-month loan in September 2014, before signing for Grimsby Town the following January. Christian then signed for National League South side Margate in June 2015, where he spent one season.

Christian joined Dowse at Hampton & Richmond at the start of the 2016/17 season.

Dowse commented: "I had him as a young kid, signed him from Sunday morning football back in the day at Kingstonian so he's one that follows you about. We sold him for 10'000 to AFC Wimbledon, he went on to become a Football League player, his experience in this league will be vital."

We welcome Christian to the club!
