Torquay United AFC is delighted to announce the signing of striker Josh Umerah.

Catford-born frontman Umerah, 23, joins The Gulls following a spell with divisional rivals Ebbsfleet United last season.

Having come through the ranks at Charlton Athletic, loan stints with Kilmarnock and Wycombe preceded two seasons of National League action, initially with another temporary spell at Boreham Wood, before Josh signed a permanent deal with Ebbsfleet last summer.

Having already made an impact on his new teammates after registering twice against United last season, manager Gary Johnson was delighted to add the imposing forward to his squad for 2020/21.

“I’m very pleased that Josh has agreed to join us,” said Johnson

“It gives us, as I always say, another golf club in our bag. He’s a presence, he’s quick and strong, and gives us another option up front.

“I am pleased with my squad now, and if we can keep them all fit and healthy, then it’s a competitive one.”
