NEW SIGNING: Shots Sign Sylla!

We are delighted to announce that midfielder Mo Sylla has signed for the club!

Sylla, who is a midfielder by trade, will be looking to build on his previous playing experience in England, having most recently spent time for League Two side Oldham Athletic, having spent six seasons in France’s fourth tier with L’Entente SSG.

The experienced midfielder joins having spent time with Oldham in the 2019-20 season, making over 50 appearances during this time, scoring once before moving back to France to play for Stade Lavallois in the third tier of French football.

The 27 year-old joins the Shots on his return to English and will look to offer more experience and competition in that central midfield as he will experience Vanarama National League football for the first time in his career.

Sylla has previously been described on the Oldham Athletic website as “recognised for his tackling ability” as he has also been quoted on his own playing style as someone who likes “to be a shield in front of the defence, but also like the role of going box-to-box.”

The midfielder will wear the number 18 shirt during his time with the club and will look to make his first appearance in our next Vanarama National League game away to Barnet FC live on BT Sport this Saturday!

Tickets for the fixture are available HERE.
