Former Reggae Boy Loza among Caribbean ‘ballers on the move

LONDON, England (CMC) — Antigua and Barbuda international Zaine Francis-Angol has become English National League side Oldham Athletic’s seventh signing ahead of the new season.

The 29-year-old left-sided player, who ended last season on loan at Stockport County, was released by Hartlepool United at the end of the 2021-22 season.

He has signed a one-year deal with fifth-tier Oldham who were relegated from League Two at the end of last season.

Francis-Angol, who made his debut for Antigua and Barbuda in 2012 and whose mother is from the twin-island nation, has previously played for Motherwell, Kidderminster Harriers, Fylde, Accrington Stanley and Boreham Wood.

Barnet, who also plays in the National League, have signed Jamaican winger Jamar Loza on a permanent deal.

Loza, who played four times for the Reggae Boyz in 2014, has moved from Woking having previously spent time at Leyton Orient, Southend United and Yeovil Town.

The 28-year-old also made one Premier League appearance for Norwich City against Arsenal in May 2014, having come up through the club’s academy.

Former Sheffield Wednesday centre back Chey Dunkley, who received an invite to play for Jamaica in last summer’s Concacaf Gold Cup, has joined League One Shrewsbury Town on a two-year deal, with an option for a further 12 months.

The 30-year-old made 24 appearances for the Owls last season, having made his English Football League debut for Oxford and having also played for Wigan in 2020 before joining on Wednesday.

“I had a few options but it just felt like this was the right one for me,” Dunkley told the Shrewsbury website.
