Barnet’s 6ft 2in powerhouse Cliff Akurang has joined Rushden on a season-long loan deal, in a move that will see him link up again with former team-mates Max Porter and Nicky Nicolau, who is currently on trial.
28 year-old Akurang, whose previous clubs include Dagenham, Histon, and Weymouth, scored 10 times in 33 starts for the Bee’s, and looks to be Justin Edinburghs’ final piece of the jigsaw.
The final squad addition??
Edinburgh told www.thediamondsfc.com , ‘I tried to sign him when I first came to the club, he’s been top of my list for a while now. He’s someone that I think will be an excellent addition to the squad, he’s a little bit different to the strikers we’ve already go at the club. He gives us a little bit more strength, he knows this level, and he scores goals.’
