Moses Ademola, who helped Woking win the Blue Square Bet South title last season, has joined Dover Athletic for an undisclosed fee.

Whites manager Nicky Forster (pictured) moved quickly to bring in the 23-year-old forward from Eastleigh – whom Ademola joined in the summer – following the departure of Jamie Smith to Eastbourne Borough.

Forster, whose side are now third in Blue Square Bet South, said: "I’m delighted to have got Moses in and I’m sure he will be a big player for us. At only 23, he is one for the future, too."

Ademola scored seven goals in 15 league appearances for Eastleigh this season and his acquisition means that Forster has immediately plugged the gap created by Smith’s exit. The left-winger joined Dover in the summer after leaving Leyton Orient at the end of last season and made nine starting appearances.

Ademola, meanwhile, will be reunited at Crabble with his former Eastleigh team-mate Daryl McMahon and both players will be in the squad for Saturday’s trip to Billericay after McMahon missed last weekend’s 3-1 home win over Weston-super-Mare because of a one-game ban.

Two other players, left-back Tom Wynter and midfielder Dean Rance, will miss the Billericay game because of one-match suspensions. Lloyd Harrington will deputise for Wynter with McMahon returning to the centre of midfield in place of Rance.

Wynter and Rance had been due to serve their suspensions at Truro City on Tuesday but the game was called off because the Cornwall club’s pitch was waterlogged.

The Truro game has now been re-scheduled for Tuesday, again with a 7pm kick-off.
