Clarets make another addition

By Matt Lee

Chelmsford City Football Club are pleased to announce a second signing of the evening.

Following on from today's earlier signing of Amos Nasha from Concord Rangers, the Clarets are pleased to have signed Joe Anderson following his release from Maidstone United.

The 28-year-old defender began his career in the Chelsea youth team before swapping to the Blues’ London rivals, Fulham, in 2006.

Having spent a brief spell at Woking, Anderson signed professional terms following an impressive tenure with the Cottagers’ reserve side, thus earning himself opportunities with the first-team.

Following from this, Anderson signed for Lincoln City before moving to AFC Hornchurch following his release from the Imps in May 2011.

During an impressive season with the Urchins, Anderson scored once from forty appearances and was voted as Player of the Season for the 2011-12 campaign.

Anderson then signed for Billericay Town - with whom he made 23 appearances - but soon moved to Cambridge United and then Bromley.

The experienced defender soon settled down with the Ravens and, during a four-season spell, Anderson appeared 165 times - scoring five times.

During his time at Bromley, Anderson netted a free-kick as part of a 5-0 victory over the Clarets in November 2013. The following month he was named Conference South Player of the Month.

In May 2017 Anderson swapped sides to National League opponents Maidstone United but was released at the end of last term.

All at Chelmsford City Football Club look forward to welcoming Joe to the Melbourne Community Stadium.
