Altrincham have pulled off a significant coup by bringing in talented winger Justin Amaluzor from Vanarama National League rivals Aldershot for an undisclosed fee.
Following the five exciting additions announced last week, the wide areas have been a priority for our management team all summer.
Enthused with another piece of the jigsaw in place, Alty boss Phil Parkinson said: “I’m really excited we have managed to sign one of the most explosive talents in the National League.’
‘Justin is one of the most electrifying players in the division. He has that pace and power that can really strike fear in the heart of a lot of defenders.’
‘He certainly has the x-factor we look for in our wingers. He can score and create goals. I believe at 26-years-old, we have a player who nobody has quite seen the best of yet and I feel we can help him fulfil his potential at Altrincham.’
‘He’s a game changer and I feel he’ll really complement the other players we have in the frontline at present.’
‘Justin is a South London boy and I believe this has given him the tools he needs to be successful. He’s resilient, determined and has that bit of Southern confidence in himself that I believe all wingers need to do what they do well on the pitch. He’s an entertaining player, and being effective with it is what Altrincham wingers need to be and he’s certainly that.’
‘I’m really looking forward to seeing him flying down the wing and scoring goals in our famous red and white stripes.”
Having come through the youth system at Barnet, Justin joined Aldershot last summer after a season with Scottish Premier League outfit Motherwell. He scored eight goals in 41 league appearances for the Shots last term who switched to a wing-back formation after the arrival of current manager Tommy Widdrington.
The transfer is subject to NL and FA ratification.
With pre-season edging ever closer and the pre-season friendlies shortly getting under way, Alty fans won’t have to wait long to see what our latest electrifying signing is all about!
Welcome to the club Justin, we look forward to you gracing the red and white of Alty!
