Hot on the heels of bringing one electrifying winger to the club, Altrincham have signed another flying winger as Bermudan international Justin Donawa joins the club.
The right-sided speed merchant has spent over two seasons at Solihull Moors, including a goal at The J. Davidson in October 2021, following a spell with Darlington.
After a period on the sidelines through injury at Solihull, Donawa returned to full fitness for the second half of last season and produced some outstanding performances for the Moors.
“I’m very pleased to welcome Bermudan international winger Justin Donawa to Altrincham Football Club,’ said Alty manager Phil Parkinson.
‘We identified that we needed to add pace to our frontline, JD certainly gives us that. But he is definitely not just a player who relies on his pace, he’s been well educated and coached.’
‘I think he’ll suit the way we work and play. He’s now got a decent amount of experience at this level and higher with his international exploits.’
‘He’s very versatile which is also extremely important with us operating with a smaller squad. He can play right-wing, right wing-back and right-back….it is rare for a winger to be so reliable defensively as well as being a threat going forward.’
‘Like all the players we’ve signed this summer, he’s a great age with a point to prove in the prime of his career. He’s got so much potential and I don’t think he’s demonstrated it fully yet but we’re confident we can help him get there.’
‘JD will be a player who will get the fans on the edge of their seats and fill them with belief he’ll create something every time he’s involved in the play.’
Our seventh signing of the summer, which is subject to NL and FA ratification, adds yet more pace and power to Phil Parkinson and Neil Sorvel’s attacking options and the 28-year-old promises to be yet highly exciting addition to the attacking ranks.
Welcome to the club JD, we’re delighted to have you on board!
