NEW SIGNINGS | Napa and Mongoy join after successful trial
Wealdstone FC are pleased to announce the double signing of Malachi Napa and Jordy Mongoy following a successful trial period in which they both featured in games against Hendon, Slough Town and Beaconsfield Town.
Napa began his career with Oxford United and had early loan spells at North Leigh and Hampton & Richmond Borough. His form for the Beavers earned a recall and a spot in the U's first team where he made 17 appearances before going out on loan again to EFL League Two side Macclesfield Town for the 2018/19 season.
An injury on his return to Oxford meant he wouldn’t play again until a loan move to Woking in October 2020 and the move was made permanent later that season, in a part of Alan Dowson's side that made the FA Trophy semi-finals, scoring a phenomenal overhead kick against Sutton United.
After leaving Woking, 23-year old winger Napa joined Maldon & Tiptree of the Isthmian League North, where he made 26 appearances and scored 6 goals last term.
Mongoy joins the club having scored in the Stones 4-4 draw at Beaconsfield Town on Monday evening and spent last season at Totternhoe, Bognor Regis Town and Walton Casuals, cumulatively scoring 15 goals in 43 games for all three.
The 23-year old striker who can also play on the wing began his career at Dagenham & Redbridge before joining Billericay Town when Stuart Maynard worked there as Assistant Manager.
The striker can also add Hemel Hempstead Town, Hitchin Town, Whitehawk, Hastings United and Lewes to his list of former sides and his performances last season and during his trial period this month have earned him a move to the National League.
On signing Napa, Stones boss Maynard said, “Malachi has been someone we've known about for a couple of years, as he was highly thought of at Oxford.
"Anyone who has seen our pre-season games will see the ability he has to go past people as a winger. The way we play will mean he will get the ball a lot around the opposition's box, which is where he does his best work.
"He's got brilliant work ethic too which isn't always easy to find in out and out wingers, so he's going to add a different dimension to our team.
"Malachi has played plenty of National League games, 14 appearances in League One and 15 in League Two, so he's got good experience for someone who's only 23.
"We're delighted to have him on board and know the fans will enjoy his creativity and dribbling ability."
And speaking at training, Stones Assistant Manager Matt Saunders said this about the Stones new striker, "Jordy has come in and impressed us in the two weeks he's been here. He's a young lad who is hungry to learn and he has a lot of attributes we look for in a centre forward.
"He runs in behind really well and he has good energy to enable us to press well too. He's somebody that has the tools, but he needs an opportunity at the level and he's someone we will invest time in to help him succeed.
"It's great to have him on board and he deserves his chance at this level."
Both transfers are subject to all the necessary FA and league approvals.
