The former Watford, Colchester United and Chelmsford City striker has penned a deal at the Saunders Transport Community Stadium!

Boro boss Spencer Day has bagged hot property Michael Folivi, with the ex EFL striker moving the Hampshire for the 2023/24 season.

Having started out his career at Watford, Michael took on loan spells with Coventry City, Boreham Wood and AFC Wimbledon (twice) throughout the following years, before signing for League Two Colchester United in the 2020/21 season.

Injury resulted in Folivi departing Colchester City for National League South Chelmsford City in February 2023, where the 25-year-old netted 6 goals in 14 appearances for The Clarets… including two against Boro!

Manager Spencer Day couldn’t hold back his excitement at the signing: “Wow, just wow!

“Buzzing to get Michael! A pacy striker who scored regularly in the EFL before a shocking injury.

“As he showed at the end of last season, including against us, what a striker he is… and with Alfie [Pavey] has the real prospects of a lethal partnership.”

“I’ve no doubt he won’t be with us long and thrilled he chose us after a great conversation.

“Thanks to his agents too who appreciate what Boro can offer Michael on his path forward whilst being fantastic for us”

After signing on the dotted line, Michael told the official website: “It all picked up on Saturday to be fair.

“I had a great conversation with the Gaffer and he sold it to me.

“I played against yourselves last year and other than getting the two goals, it was a tough fixture.

“I see myself kicking on from here and doing good things for the Club. We’ve both got the same vision and that’s obviously to succeed.”
