Striker Aaron Opoku has signed a two-year deal with Manchester based Northern Premier League side Matlock FC.
The 26-year-old attacker joined the Gladiators on Monday from Carlton Town where he spent four successful seasons and was their star player this ended season netting 14 goals.
Matlock coach Paul Phillips is confident that Opoku can be useful to his side in their quest to qualify for the national leagues.
“We’ve watched him and he’s big, strong, quick and powerful with bags of goals in him” said Phillips.
“He’s been a good servant to Carlton in the league below but he’s moving to Manchester and it’s too good an opportunity to miss for we need to add goals to our squad. Darryl Thomas speaks very highly of him and very highly of Matlock. We’re delighted to bring him to the club.” He added.
Opoku is expected to make his debut for the club on August 13 when the league starts
