Maidenhead United secured their seventh signing of the summer after bringing in experienced centre-forward Jake Cassidy over the weekend.
The former Wolverhampton Wanderers forward joins the Magpies from Hartlepool United, after scoring twice last season in the National League while on-loan at Maidstone United.
The Welshman has plenty of experience across all levels in England, playing in the Championship and league One for Wolves, before turning out for the likes of Southend, Tranmere Rovers and Oldham Athletic in the Football League.
The centre-forward came to the attention of Wolves after scoring 28 goals in 32 league appearances for Llandudno Junction as a 16-year-old before scoring his first professional goal against Rochdale while on-loan at Tranmere.
The 26-year-old made eight appearances for Wales u21s and bolsters the Magpies front line following the departures of Ryan Bird and Adrian Clifton this summer.
Speaking to the club’s media team Chief scout Lee Devonshire said: “Jake is a proper old-school centre forward and one we are delighted to finally get over the line. He has a good pedigree and has been at some big clubs and we firmly believe we are ideal for him and in turn he is ideal for us.”
