National League North side AFC Telford have completed the impressive signing of former Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.

The experienced 31-year-old, who began his career at Manchester United, enjoyed the most prolific spell of his career at Molineux, scoring 64 goals between 2008-2015 and firing Mick McCarthy’s men to the Premier League in 2009.

Ebanks-Blake has also enjoyed spells at the likes Plymouth, Preston and most recently Chesterfield, where he scored 11 goals over two seasons, and Telford manager Rob Edwards is delighted to have him at the club.

Speaking to the club’s website, the Bucks boss said: “I am absolutely delighted to have secured the signing of Sylvan.

“He has been training with us for a while and we thought it may not happen at one point, but I am very happy to have got him signed and he will no doubt become a real coup for the club.

“Sylvan joins the club with a great attitude and feels he has a point still to prove in his career.

“It’s important we don’t expect to much too soon however with his experience he will be able to help the younger players in the squad and will become a really positive addition to the team.”
