Former Plymouth Argyle forward who became manager Nathan Jones’ seventh signing of the close season when he penned a one-year deal at the end of a successful fortnight on trial in July.

The 22-year-old is a cousin of former England international Darius Vassell, and for the past two seasons has combined life working on a building site with playing part-time for Truro City following his release by the Pilgrims in 2014. Vassell helped his hometown club win promotion from the Southern Premier Division and then qualify for the National League South play-offs in his two years at Treyew Road. Vassell scored his first Town goal in a 2-0 win over Morecambe in November, before following it up with a classy finish against Swindon Town in the Checkatrade Trophy in a 3-2 victory. The striker was rewarded with a new contract just before Christmas that runs until 2018, and reached double figures in goals by the end of March.
