Striker goes straight into Saturday's squad

Wilson Kneeshaw

Darlington have today signed striker Wilson Kneeshaw for the second time.

Former Middlesbrough Under 23 player Wilson, has already had one spell with us, playing five games (scoring once) in the 2015-16 season after he’d had a trial at Chesterfield. He was released by Quakers after five games and then joined Blyth Spartans. He moved to the USA in August 2016 and joined Sacramento Republic, who play a level below Major League Soccer until December last year, when he returned to his home town.

Quakers have finally received international clearance for the 24 year old, and manager Tommy Wright said; “Wilson will give us an extra option in the forward line, plus we’ve also signed him with a view to achieving something in terms of a contract for next season.

“I also like his pace and his personality – he seems to have hit it off with the lads in the dressing room.” He goes into the squad for Saturday's game.

We would like to wish Wilson all the best in his stay with us.
