Wrexham AFC is delighted to announce the signing of striker Mike Fondop Talom on a two-year contract.
The 24-year-old forward put pen to paper this morning and became manager Sam Ricketts’ second signing of the summer period.
Mike began life in the Vanarama National League with Guiseley during October 2017 where he scored three times before making a loan switch to FC Halifax Town.
Joining the Shaymen in February this year he made twelve appearances and scored four times including memorable winners against Boreham Wood and Sutton United.
A native of Cameroon, the powerful frontman has gained a first class honours degree at Essex University in actuarial sciences, combining football with his studies since moving from capital city Yaoundé six years ago.
He’s crammed a lot of football in to those six years too. Prior to joining Guiseley he turned out for the likes of Whitehawk, Stanway Rovers, Billericay and Oxford City, where he scored eight goals in 27 games in 2016-17.
Manager Sam Ricketts spoke to the club website this morning and said: “Mike is a really good player. He is a real hot prospect we identified as a target really early on and I’ve been waiting to make a move for him since.
“We have beaten off lots of interest from others, including football league clubs, so I’m obviously delighted he has signed here at Wrexham.”
