City Add Two To Squad

Chelmsford City have confirmed the signings of Jake Jessup and Jonny Giles.

Goalkeeper Jessup (pictured), formerly with Bostik League North side Norwich United, joins the Clarets having completed a successful trial with Rod Stringer's side.

The tall keeper whose other former clubs include Great Yarmouth Town and Lowestoft Town, appeared in each of City's pre-season matches, as well as completing a full set of 90 minutes against Thurrock and Bishop's Stortford.

Also making the move to the Melbourne Community Stadium is 23-year-old Jonny Giles.

The young winger spent the second half of last season on-loan at Aldershot Town in the National League from Oxford United.

Giles originally joined Oxford after impressing on-trial after completing a Degree in Physics and went on to make nine appearances for the Shots as they reached the play-offs.

Speaking after completing the deal for Giles, Stringer said: "Jonny has a lot of quality top-end.

"I think he'll be a good player for us and it gives us a lot of competitions. It makes us a bit more of a threat out wide.

"I'm sure he'll be a good addition for us but, like every other playr, he has to prove himself to get that shirt".
