Slough Town’s chase for promotion from the Vanarama National League South this season has been given a boost with the addition of attacker Paul Hodges.

The 26-year-old joins from National League Woking where he had helped the Cards to promotion last season back to the top tier of non league football.

Writing on the Slough Town FC website, joint Rebels boss Jon Underwood said: “He is an exciting player who can play in a number of attacking roles and with this pace and trickery we believe he will become very popular with the Rebels fans and will give us a different option in the final third of the pitch.”

Hodges himself wrote a heartfelt departure note on twitter: “I’ve played for my team, with my name on the back in a stadium I’ve known since a boy.”

The official Woking FC twitter account posted two messages highlighting Hodges successful spell with the club.

The Rebels race for a play spot, and a possible tilt at the title doesn’t get any easier following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with fellow promotion chasers Havant & Waterlooville.

Underwood and Neil Bakers side travel Chelmsford City on Saturday before a return trip to Havant next Wednesday. A full list of Saturday fixtures across the county are here.
