On his part, Ayunga said:  "I'm delighted to be here. Ever since I heard about the potential of the move I've been excited to join.

"I have chats with Ben and hearing the plan that he has for both me and the club and where he wants to go showed me that this is a good place to be."

Manager Ben Garner said, “We are delighted to bring Jonah to the Mem. Given the season he has just had there was interest from a number of EFL clubs and we are very pleased that we have managed to agree on a deal that will see Jonah play here at Rovers.

 "He's another player that we have looked at extensively over a long period of time and we feel that the qualities he brings will enhance the squad we are assembling.

 "He's coming off the back of featuring in the National League play-offs for Havant and Waterlooville, so he's in good shape to join up immediately with the rest of the squad.”

Ayunga who has trained with both the Kenya U23 and the national team Harambee Stars started his career at Dorchester Town before moving to Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion where he linked up with their U23 side.
