Diamonds bring in talented forward to aid survival bid

AFC Rushden & Diamonds have signed Leighton Town striker Dylan Wilson.

Wilson has spent much of the current season with UCL Premier Division side Cogenhoe United, where he has scored 10 goals in 20 appearances.

He subsequently joined Southern Central side Leighton earlier this month but has now opted for a move to the Pitching In NPL Midlands Division.

His goal-scoring prowess is a welcome sight for a Diamonds side currently six points adrift at the foot of the NPL Midlands Division and a further point from safety.

They have scored just 18 league goals this season - six fewer than any other side in the division.

Wilson goes straight into contention ahead of Tuesday night's home game against Boldmere St Michaels.
