Hartlepool United are delighted to announce the signing of Josh Umerah.
The Forward joins on a two-year deal from Wealdstone FC for an undisclosed fee.
A product of the Charlton Athletic academy, Umerah enjoyed loan spells at Kilmarnock, Wycombe, and Boreham Wood before joining Ebbsfleet on a permanent deal in 2019.
After a short spell at Torquay, the forward joined Wealdstone in 2021 and scored 17 goals in all competitions last season.
Umerah added- "I am delighted to sign for Hartlepool United. As soon as I heard about the interest and I spoke to the Manager, there was only one place I wanted to be. All I want to do is score goals and succeed for the team. I am excited to meet the fans and get started with the season just around the corner."
Paul Hartley commented-
"Josh is a player we’ve been tracking since I came in. He offers that physical presence, he knows where the goal is. He links play up and we are excited to work with him."
Umerah will take the number nine shirt for the 2022/23 season.
