GLENN Pennyfather is "absolutely delighted" to have added striker Rob Edmans to the Chelmsford City squad permanently after his recent release from Football League club Dagenham & Redbridge.

Edmans had enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Clarets from October to December, during which he netted five goals.

"It's fantastic to have Rob as an option for us again," said boss Pennyfather.

"He offers us something different up front, and we're looking forward to seeing him at his peak again to complement the players we already have here. He obviously knows our club well and we're aware of what he's capable of too."
