Maidenhead United have made Chester’s James Akintunde their fifth summer signing.
The 22-year-old arrives at York Road having netted 12 times in 48 appearances for Chester FC in the National League.
Alan Devonshire is confident the players he’s brought in will keep the club on its upward trajectory, although he admitted this week the likes of Harry Pritchard, Sam Barratt and Sean Marks will be difficult to replace.
The Magpies manager has bolstered his forward options in recent weeks, with the arrival of former Portsmouth striker Ryan Bird and now Akintunde from Chester. Wide man Herson Alves, a recent signing from Brentford, can also play in behind, he said.
Defender Ayo Obileye and winger Max Worsfold have also come through the arrivals gate at York Road.
Atkintunde, 22, began his career at Cambridge United, having graduated through the U’s youth system. After loan spells with Sudbury and Histon he moved to Chester in 2016.
