ACCRINGTON Stanley have today snapped up AFC Wimbledon striker Rosco Dsane on a one-year contract.

Dsane, 26, broke the 20 goals barrier last season, bagging 21 times, all in his first season back from a career threatening knee injury.

The Ex-Aldershot man also bagged 21 times in the Conference in 2003/04, helping his olf team to the Millenium Stadium, before they lost out in the Play-Off Final.

Crystal Palace saw Dsane start his career, where he was a Junior for just over four years. Brief spells with Southend and Woking followed before he made the switch to Aldershot in 2002.

Dsane’s former boss whilst at AFC Wimbledon, Dave Anderson thinks that the big striker can become a real League Two force.

‘I spoke to Roscoe this morning and I’m delighted for the lad. John Coleman rang me to ask me about Roscoe and there’s no doubt in my mind that he is ready. He was a great asset for us last season.’ Anderson said speaking to the London and South of England Guardian.

‘I want him to do well and there is no doubt in my mind that he has got what it takes to cut it at that level.’

Anderson was the man to take the gamble on Dsane following his horrific knee injury, and is happy with the way things have worked out as they have.

‘I’m not one to blow my own trumpet – but what a great bit of business that was bringing him to the club. I’d kept tabs on him for quite a few months because his talent has never been in doubt and he proved that last year.

‘He is well over his knee injury after playing over 40 games last season. The only question he will need to answer in terms of his knee is training everyday – that is the only question mark because his ability and fitness isn’t a doubt.’
