Experienced winger signs up for next season


Chelmsford City is delighted to announce that winger Khale Da Costa has signed for the club.

Khale, 28, has a wealth of experience at Vanarama National League South level, having appeared for St Albans City, Concord Rangers, Tonbridge Angels and Braintree Town. He also had a spell at National League club Dover Athletic.

He came through the academies at Fulham and Luton but then progressed to Harlow, Ware and Hendon before making the leap up to National League South level with Concord.

Chelmsford City fans may remember Khale as he has scored twice against us in the past, one a spectacular lob for St Albans in April 2019, and then a well taken driven shot against the Clarets for Tonbridge in October of the same year, a game well remembered by Chelmsford fans, as the Clarets scored two goals in injury time to snatch the points at the Longmead Stadium.

Chelmsford City manager Robbie Simpson spoke to www.chelmsfordcityfc.com regarding his latest signing, “Khale is an exciting player. He’s someone with a lot of experience at this level and above so he’s someone we really wanted to get in.

“He can play in a few positions, either wide, or up top, or even behind the strikers as an advanced midfielder. He’s very quick and he’ll score goals as well. He had a very good spell at Braintree last season and he caught our eye there and we’ve kept tabs on him ever since.

“He wanted to come and play for us which was a big factor as he wants to regain his love for the game and we’re here to give him that love back, so we’re excited to get him in the building and get him performing how everyone knows he can.”
