Forward Conor Wilkinson became the club’s first signing of the 2021 summer transfer window.

The six-foot-three striker began his career at Bolton Wanderers where he made 17 appearances in total.

He enjoyed loan spells at Chester, Torquay United, Barnsley, Newport County, Portsmouth and Chesterfield before eventually leaving the Trotters permanently in 2017. He signed for Gillingham in League One that summer.

In November 2018, he left Priestfield, initially on loan to join Dagenham & Redbridge in the National League where he scored four in his first three appearances.

The move was made permanent in January 2019 and he finished the season with 12 goals which prompted Leyton Orient to sign him following their promotion back to the EFL in the summer of 2019.

He spent two years at the Breyer Group Stadium and scored 20 times in all competitions before signing for the Saddlers in 2021.
