AFC Sudbury retain the services of striker Romario Dunne following recovery from serious knee injury

AFC Sudbury have retained the services of Romario Dunne.

Sixteen members of last season’s promotion-winning squad have opted to move on following the departure of former boss Rick Andrews, but striker Dunne has committed his future to project under new manager Marc Abbott.

Dunne has spent much of the previous 18 months working his way back from a cruciate knee ligament injury sustained early on in his stint with Sudbury. However, he has now returned to fitness and is ready to hit the ground running going into pre-season.

Abbott told the Sudbury website: “Maz made a very positive start to his AFC Sudbury career, but was halted mid-way through by a serious knee injury.

“Romario has worked hard to return and we are looking forward to seeing a stronger more determined player this season. Rom is a hard working forward who is just the type of player needed on the club's return to Step 3.”

The club also confirmed that they will be unveiling their third new signing of the summer tomorrow following the recent arrivals of James Bradbrook and Tom Dickens.

Meanwhile, Thursday will see them announce another retained player who will wear the captain’s armband next term.
