All at Cray Wanderers wish all the best to Ejiro Okosieme who sadly has had to announce his retirement from the game due to a persistent knee injury. Ejiro was a very popular addition to the team, especially notable for his height and a real threat from set pieces which saw him score two goals this season.
Ejiro has been dogged by a knee injury for a while and hoped to carry on playing this season but sparingly but with the threat of permanent damage likely he decided to call time on his career.

He started out in the Youth system at Middlesbrough and a couple of other North East clubs. He has been on the books at Walsall, Bishop’s Stortford, Chatham Town, Macclesfield Town, Dover, Braintree Town on loan and went on to Welling United in August 2019 before joining Romford in January 2020. He was signed by Cray Wanderers in the spring and made five appearances scoring against Hornchurch and Worthing. Hopefully Ejiro will come to watch us play and if he does please give the big guy a great reception.
