Striker Kyle Vassell Joins Clarets Squad

By Chris Evans

Former Norwich City and Brentford youngster Kyle Vassell has added strength to the Chelmsford City forward line by signing for Glenn Pennyfather's Clarets - and he's eligible for tomorrow's trip to league leaders Salisbury City.

The ex-Bees first-year professional, who was most latterly with fellow Blue Square Bet South club Sutton United, can operate up-front or on the left wing. He's available for selection ahead at the Raymond McEnhill Stadium tomorrow, although not Chelmsford's potential path in the FA Trophy this season as he's cup tied.

Having progressed through the ranks at Carrow Road he also played for the Youth and Reserve Teams at Brentford until his release in the summer of 2011, following work experience spells at Woking and St Albans City in the Conference South. He then linked-up with Dover Athletic that October after a successful trial, scoring on his debut for the Crabble club in the Kent Senior Cup.

Kyle spent a short amount of time at Tooting & Mitcham United and Whitehawk towards the end of 2011 until signing for Sutton United. He scored 13 goals in 38 games there, including a three-minute hat-trick in the Surrey Senior Cup, and he helped Staines Town to avoid relegation from the same division last season.

Where next?

Salisbury Reverse Clarets' Two-Goal Lead Defensive mistakes at crucial points in the game were the reasons Chelmsford surrendered a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 at Blue Square Bet South leaders Salisbury City according to Manager Glenn Pennyfather, who saw the hosts' first strike moments before half time as the turning point in an entertaining clash.
Clarets Arrange Concord Rangers Senior Cup Date Manager Glenn Pennyfather will take his City squad to face Ryman League Premier Division side Concord Rangers on Tuesday 8th January in the Quarter-Finals of the Essex Senior Cup supported by BBC Essex.
