CHIPPENHAM Town have signed utility player Yan Klukowski until January.

Klukowski, 20, trained and played with the Bluebirds over the summer while on his holiday from his football scholarship in America, and will do so again until he returns to the US next month.

The former Sheldon School pupil was named most valuable player (MVP) in college football this year, where he plays for Central Connecticut State University.

Town manager Darren Perrin swooped to add another body to his threadbare side for the demanding Christmas and New Year schedule.

"He is very versatile and can play in defence, midfield and as an attacking midfielder. He will certainly help us out over the busy Christmas period," Perrin said.

"We are not sure if he will be available for tomorrow's game at Cheshunt because of jet lag but he will be ready for the home game with Halesowen on Saturday, December 23."
