New Signing: Pharrell Anderson

AFC Rushden & Diamonds are delighted to announce the signing of 18-year-old attacking player Pharrell Anderson on a dual-registration basis from United Counties League Premier Division South side Cogenhoe United.

Pharrell, like Will Glennon, is a product of the AFC Rushden & Diamonds academy system. He has since moved on to the AFC Rushden & Diamonds scholarship programme at Moulton College and has combined this with playing for Cogenhoe at Step 5, scoring an impressive 12 goals in 34 appearances in his first season in men’s football.

Pharrell concludes our business ahead of today’s registration deadline and as mentioned by Manager Chris Nunn at the weekend, is a signing with next season in mind. Chris spoke to on his new signing: “A few people whose opinion I respect, including Matty Vernon, have told me I need to have a good look at Pharrell and I’m pleased to be able to do that over the next couple of months. To have featured week-in, week-out at Step 5 at 18 years of age shows he’s got a good future ahead of him and he’s got a platform now to show us what he can do as attention starts to turn to next season. I’d like to say a big thanks to Biff at Cogenhoe for his help in getting this over the line and allowing one of his first-team regulars to test himself at a higher level at this stage of the season.”

Subject to league approval, Pharrell Anderson is available for selection for Saturday’s Pitching In Southern League Premier Division Central fixture against Leiston at Hayden Road.
