Ford joins Diamonds from Chesham United, where he made 16 appearances after joining them in September last year.

Ford, who can play anywhere across the midfield and also at left-back, began his career in the youth set-up at Rushden & Diamonds before he joined Kettering Town where he featured in the top-flight of non-League football.

He went on to have spells at Nuneaton Town, Hinckley United, Bedworth United, St Neots Town, Biggleswade Town and Arlesey Town.
