Antonio German arrives at Clarence Park having been most recently at rivals Hemel Hempstead Town.

However, before that he has an impressive list of employers.

He started life at Loftus Road where he made 22 league appearances and enjoyed loan spells at Aldershot Town, alongside current City favourite Ben Herd, Southend and Yeovil Town.

A permanent move to Stockport County followed before he returned south to feature for Brentford, Gillingham and a second spell with Aldershot.

He also played in the Indian Premier League with Kerala Blasters.

That experience may prove vital and at 26 he is still approaching the prime of his career.

He will add competition up front for the likes of Sam Merson and Charlie Walker.

A spokesman for the club said: “We welcome Antonio and hope he enjoys his time in the yellow & blue of St Albans City.”
