Akintunde netted four times in 13 outings for the Candy Stripes last season but his attitude and workrate impressed City boss, Declan Devine most.

The 24 year-old Londoner put pen to paper on a one year deal this week and Devine hopes, with a full preseason behind him the club will see his best form.

“James did a brilliant job for us after the re-start last season even though he would say himself he wasn’t fully fit when he arrived.”

“Once again he’s a player we know plenty about and he has the attitude and desire to do well for this club.

“He trains well and is a pleasure to work with and although he had other options I’m delighted he has decided to come back.”

“In my opinion James has a huge part to play for this club in 2021 and I have no doubt that our supporters will see plenty of him throughout the season.”
