Woking Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Declan Appau on a one-year contract and the addition of 2nd Year Academy Players Ivan Nsimbi & Sam Mason to the first team squad.
Declan is a midfield player who joined the Academy 2 years ago having been released by AFC Wimbledon. He featured in Surrey Senior Cup games for the Cards last season and has been training with the first team during pre-season, playing in a number of the friendly matches.
Ivan, a striker, and Sam, a goalkeeper, have also been training with the Cards during pre-season, with Ivan coming off the bench in a few of the friendly matches.
Anthony Limbrick commented: â€œItâ€™s a testament to the academy that they have produced three players who are now part of the first team squad. Declan, Sam and Ivan all performed well during a tough pre-season. Credit to Scott Harrison and Jane Spong for their hard work throughout the academy and community programme.â€�
Scott Harrison, Academy manager, added: â€œItâ€™s great to see a manager putting faith in our academy system and trusting these young players within the first team environment.
Ivan & Sam have potential but this time with the first team will gain them vital experience.
Iâ€™m happy for Declan as he was released by AFC Wimbledon and we took him on 2 years ago, I saw potential in him then and each year he has progressed, he still has lots to learn, but like all 3 Iâ€™m proud, like all of the staff are, to see this progression and I hope we can continue to find more prospects like these and support Anthonyâ€™s needs.â€�
We welcome Declan, Ivan, and Sam to the first team squad.
