Wainwright signs for Durham City

D'Andre Wainwright has joined fellow Bermudian Tevahn Tyrell at English non-League side Durham City.

Wainwright, who represented Bermuda Under-20s at the Concacaf Under-20 Championships in Florida in 2018, previously had trials at English Football League clubs.

The 20-year-old is a former Devonshire Colts and Somerset Trojans player. His compatriot Tyrell, who played for Robin Hood last season, signed for Durham City in February.

“We are delighted that D'Andre has agreed to join Durham for next season. D'Andre is a powerful, goalscorer who has represented Bermuda at international level and recently been on trial at EFL clubs,” the club tweeted.

Durham City spent the majority of last term at the wrong end of the Northern League Division Two before the campaign was cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The North East outfit appointed Didier Agathe, the former Celtic defender, as their new manager in April.

Agathe, 44, was part of the Celtic side that lost 3-2 against Porto in the Uefa Cup final in 2003. He also made a handful of appearances in the Premier League for Aston Villa in 2006.
