WEYMOUTH have completed the signing of striker Jordan Greenidge.

Greenidge last Thursday had his contract terminated by Sky Bet League Two side Newport County by mutual consent – a day after turning 22.

He is understood to have trained with Weymouth the same evening.

The former Stoke City youth man had played six times for the Welshmen, netting a solitary goal against Arsenal Under-21s in the EFL Trophy group stage.

He counts Cypriot top tier side Omonia and Spanish Segunda B outfit Badajoz among his former clubs.

Before his departure this week, ex-Weymouth manager Brian Stock was influential in completing the deal and said Greenidge would give the Terras a new “focal point” up front.

“We’ve got Jordan in, a six-foot-four striker, he’ll give us a different dimension up front," he said.

“His contract has been terminated at Newport and he’s signed his contract with us.

“He’s going to give us a focal point up front with the physicality he’s got.

“He’s quick, he’s strong, scores goals so hopefully he could be the missing piece of the jigsaw.”

Weymouth now have five strikers at the club, including Brandon Goodship, Brad Ash, Ben Thomson and Martell Taylor-Crossdale.

Skipper Josh McQuoid provides a sixth option, although the Terras have mostly used the ex-Bournemouth man in a deeper midfield role this season.

Asked if some of those names would have to make way on loans, Stock added: “Potentially. We don’t want players sitting in the stand.

“We don’t want them to go stale, if that’s going back out to come back again and get that fitness then we’ll have to take action on that.”
