Welling United are delighted to confirm the arrival of right-back Chiori Johnson.

The 26-year old is a product of Arsenal’s academy, signing his first pro deal with the Gunners in 2015. He embarked on a loan with Bolton Wanderers in 2018 before joining the Wings for his first spell with the club in 2019, enjoying a season and a half with the Wings before the pandemic ended his time in DA16 in 2020.

His performances while at Park View Road attracted the attention of National League outfit Torquay United ahead of the 2021/22 season. After one season at Plainmoor, he made the move to Yeovil Town before becoming a free agent at the end of last season.

Danny Bloor now welcomes Johnson back to DA16 to bolster his defensive options for the second half of the campaign.
