Wealdstone have announced Moses Emmanuel has signed a one-year contract ahead of the 2020/21 season National League season.

Emmanuel joined the Stones in January and started the final nine games of the season where he scored four goals, including a match-winning brace at Havant & Waterlooville on his second appearance.

The 31-year-old centre-forward gained his fourth promotion from the National League South in 2019/20 and will be playing for his fifth club in the National League next season.

Emmanuel said: “I’m delighted to have re-signed for the club. I felt really at home in the short period of time before the season was stopped, so I’m looking forward to next season in the National League and scoring goals.

“There’s a real family feel at the club and all the fans are so welcoming. It really helped having worked with the management team and a few of the players before when I first came which helped me kick on quickly.”

On winning the National League South title: “I’m buzzing to have won the league, it was fully deserved by the players and staff. It’s really good that we’ve manage to keep the majority of the same squad and think that will help to really compete in the National League.”
