Dartford sign striker Kudus Oyenuga and Alfie Pavey joins Havant

By KentOnline reporter

Dartford have signed a striker who scored and was sent off against them last season.

The Darts have landed forward Kudus Oyenuga from National League South rivals Chelmsford to boost their attack.

Oyenuga saw red after a clash with Darts defender Tom Bonner in the league game at Chelmsford last October, which the hosts ended up winning 1-0.

There was better fortune for Oyenuga in the return fixture at Princes Park in February, however, when Oyenuga netted from the penalty spot in Chelmsford's controversial 2-1 win.

The penalty was generously awarded by referee Jack Packman, who later admitted to then Dartford boss Tony Burman that he had made a mistake.

Oyenuga started his career at Tottenham and has also had spells at Dundee and Hartlepool.

He also scored once against Welling last season, who were managed to now joint Darts boss Jamie Coyle.

"Kudus first caught our eye last season when playing against Chelmsford and impressed us both," said Coyle.

"He is extremely quick and an intelligent player who is a constant threat in the final third.

"He will add real quality to the players that are already retained for next season.”

Meanwhile, former Darts striker Alfie Pavey has joined National League Havant on a two-year deal. Dartford will be entitled to compensation for the forward.
