Jim Gannon made his first signing during his 3rd spell as County boss on Wednesday. Former Wrexham striker Obi Anoruo has signed on a free transfer after his release from Gloucester City last week.
The Nigerian-born frontman is a proven goalscorer at conference north level, netting 17 goals in the division whilst at Vauxhall Motors, impressing enough to earn a move to Colwyn Bay the following season.
His season in Wales was also fruitful, Anoruo scored 19 times for Colwyn and was named player of the season last year for the club, who were relegated to the Evo-Stik Premier league.
The two goals that he scored against Gloucester proved decisive for Obi as City took a chance and offered him a deal, and despite things not working out at Gloucester, County fans will be pleased to have a striker who has proven goalscoring experience at conference north level.
Whether things work out well for Anoruo remain to be seen, and when he makes his debut for the club he’ll become the 39th player to wear the shirt this season alone. A terrifying statistic. Perhaps it’ll be 39th time lucky?
