Heybridge Swifts have signed striker Dumebi GB Dumaka from Essex Senior League side Barking.

Dumebi who has 43 career goals at the Mayesbrook Park Club, 13 of which have been this season, played in the friendly match last Saturday on the 3G pitch in Basildon against Bowers and Pitsea before making his debut as a second-half substitute against Soham Town Rangers on Tuesday night.
