Tonight Phil Parkinson and Nantwich Town have signed striker Vinny Mukendi after leaving Hednesford Town today. Vinny is no stranger to the Weaver Stadium having played here briefly under previous manager Danny Johnson.
The giant 6ft 7in front man was impressed with Nantwich Town after our recent game at Hednesford Town a few weeks ago and left the Pitmen earlier today after finding the commute from Manchester to training and games too challenging. Mukendi started his career at Macclesfield Town, but has spent time with a number different clubs over the last 8 years. He signed for Hednesford shortly before Christmas and scored 4 goals in 8 appearances.
He returns to the Dabbers after playing for them during the 14/15 season under Johnson, where he managed 2 goals. After coming in on short notice and taking part in training, Vinny wants to be part of the special team and believes he can contribute to the club’s success this season.
Phil Parkinson has said about the signing: “I feel Vinny could give us a different dimension when other teams come up against Nantwich and park the bus. He will give us another option if the game doesn’t go to plan.”
We would like to welcome Vinny back to the club, and we hope that he can contribute to a successful end to the season.
