THE Mariners have completed the signing of former Newport County striker Christian Jolley on a deal until the end of the season.
Jolley started out at Kingstonian where he became an immediate hit, helping the Surrey based side get to the play-offs and narrowly missed out on promotion.
After impressing at Kingstonian, Jolley was signed by AFC Wimbledon in May 2010. He scored on his debut against Southport and was part of the squad which was promoted to the Football League.
In 2012, Jolley joined Conference side Newport County on loan, making a scoring debut against . Hyde. After his prolific form, consisting of five league goals in only four league games, Jolley was recalled by AFC Wimbledon.
However the frontman later returned to Newport County on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee.
His prolific form in front of goal continued and his goals helped County get promoted to the Football League via the play-offs – scoring one of the goals in the semi finals to sink the Mariners' promotion hopes.
The 26-year-old joined his new team-mates at our Cheapside training ground this morning and he could be set to make his debut at Eastleigh tomorrow night.
The deal is subject to FA and Football Conference clearance.
