23/03/22: AFC Rushden & Diamonds can confirm that 21-year-old midfielder Nigel Chikamba has signed Southern League forms. A regular for the Club’s Academy Under 21s, Chikamba joined us for the 2019/20 season from Hemel Hempstead’s youth setup having previously played junior football with Luton Town, Watford and MK Dons.

This season he has played 23 games for the Under 21s where he has scored 6 goals, made 8 assists and has been named Man of the Match twice.

Everyone at AFC Rushden & Diamonds would like to extend their warm congratulations to Nigel.

26/07/22: We are pleased to confirm that Nigel Chikamba has signed Southern League forms for the 2022/23 season.

Chikamba, a central midfielder, signed forms for the first team last season and made the bench a number of times as the Diamonds competed for a playoff spot.

Andy Burgess: “Nigel is a central midfielder who I really like and needs to develop himself at first team level. He has the attributes and qualities to do so and it’s up to us to help him do that.
