Reggae Boyz midfielder, Jobi McAnuff will play his football at English League Two club Stevenage next season.

McAnuff was signed on a free transfer by Stevenage yesterday after he was released by another League Two club, Leyton Orient, in May after two seasons.

The 34-year-old, who has 29 caps for Jamaica, played 57 games for the 'Orients' scoring six goals. He has played more than 600 professional games spanning 16 years starting with Wimbledon in 2000. His travels included stints at West Ham, Cardiff, Crystal Palace, Watford, and Reading.

The winger, who represented the Reggae Boyz at the recent Copa America Centenario, was pleased to be joining his new club and says he hopes to help them achieve their ambitions.

"I've had a few weeks off since the (Copa) tournament but you never really switch off. Everyone has been going back for preseason. Once the interest from Stevenage was there and I'd spoken to the gaffer, it was just a case of getting it done," McAnuff said in an interview posted on the club's website

"I'm delighted to get the move done now. I've heard good things about the club ... and that's already been confirmed during my short time here," he said
