Rashid Koriya can now be confirmed as an AFC Rushden & Diamonds player, following international clearance being given. This was required as he had played in the past for Durham College Lords in Ontario, Canada (this is required even when a player has been registered for an English team following the period they had played abroad). He is 29 years old, and can play at either full-back or in midfield. His previous clubs have included Rothwell Town, Woodford United and Wellingborough Town. He has played for the Diamonds U21 side to gain match fitness.
In other team news, Dan Grainger has joined Desborough Town.
We welcome Rashid to the club, and wish Dan well with his new club.
