Ad­dai signs deal to stay for next sea­son

Gloucestershire Echo - - CHELTENHAM TOWN -

ALEX Ad­dai has signed a new one year contract with Chel­tenham Town.

The 25-year-old winger made his come­back from injury as a late sub­sti­tute in Satur­day’s 3-2 home win over Swin­don Town.

He suf­fered a torn ham­string in the 1-0 home win over Yeovil Town on Fe­bru­ary 5.

Ad­dai joined the Robins be­fore the end of last sea­son after ap­pear­ing for the re­serves.

He had caught the eye play­ing for non-league Mer­stham in Isth­mian League Di­vi­sion One South.

Ad­dai started out at Tot­ten­ham and also spent time at Black­pool be­fore drop­ping into semi-pro­fes­sional foot­ball with Car­shal­ton Ath­letic, White­hawk, Kingsto­nian and Grays.

He worked as a be­hav­iour sup­port man­ager at St Thomas the Apos­tle School in Peck­ham, South East Lon­don.

He has made 10 League Two starts and 10 sub­sti­tute ap­pear­ances, en­joy­ing a pur­ple patch of form around Christ­mas.

He has also scored two FA Cup goals and one in the Check-a-trade Tro­phy.

Boss Michael Duff said after the Swin­don win: “Alex is fit, well his ham­string is, he is just not heart and lungs fit.

“We thought it was an op­por­tu­nity to show peo­ple he’s back again.

“He’s been in and around the group and anyone that knows Alex, he’s been great be­cause he’s a nut­case, a lu­natic and he’s happy all the time.

“He does my head in some­times be­cause he is too happy all the time!

“He’s been great and I’ve have liked him to maybe get on and nick a goal or some­thing, but every­one knows what Alex is.”
