The 22 year-old frontman earned a two-year deal at Cambridge United after a successful trial with the League Two club.

Brown was a terrific performer for St Neots in the second half of last season. His 19 goals in 20 appearances for the local club were a huge factor in them achieving Southern League Premier Division survival.

Saints boss Clements said: “I’m delighted to see Jevani sign for Cambridge United.

“People might expect a manager to be disappointed after seeing a top player move on, but there is no doubt in my mind that Jevani should be playing professionally.
