Last minute Ladapo ready for Sunderland

First published in Harriers

NIGERIAN-born striker Freddie Ladapo could make his Harriers debut in tomorrow's FA Cup Fourth Round tie at Sunderland.

The 20-year-old is available for the clash at the Stadium of Light after signing for an 18- month deal at Aggborough this afternoon.

He joins on a free transfer from Colchester United but he has experience of the Skrill Premier after stints at Woking and Nuneaton this season.

Standing 6ft tall and with a pace to burn, hit-man Freddie is no stranger to Skrill Premier action this season having featured in loan spells at Woking and Nuneaton, bagging a couple of goals in the process.

He came through the ranks at Colchester as one of their most exciting young prospects and while he has not been able to hold down a regular starting berth there, he’s not been a stranger to first-team action in League 1 with a handful of substitute appearances also this season.

Now reaching a stage in his career where regular first-team action is crucial, this talented youngster has joined Harriers on an 18-month contract, taking the number 24 shirt in the squad at Aggborough.
