Bognor have made an unlikely signing - a 20-year-old who has played in the Italian League.

Lorenzo Dolcetti is a central midfielder who last season played 27 matches in Italy’s Serie D for ASD Oltrepoveghera, who are based in Northern Italy.

The club have registered Dolcetti, having received confirmation of his international clearance on Friday.

Dolcetti, from Cesena in Italy, has recently moved to West Sussex to study at Chichester University and has been training with the Rocks squad for several weeks while awaiting his clearance to come through.

Bognor secretary Simon Cook said: “We very much welcome him to the club.”

He could feature in the squad to face AFC Sudbury at Nyewood Lane on Saturday and at Staines on Tuesday.
