Date of birth
25-year old Piero established his reputation as one of the finest right-sided midfielders in League Two whilst with Accrington Stanley, prior to his summer 2016 move to the U’s.
An academy player with Watford, he made a first-team debut during January 2013 when the Hornets faced Hartlepool in an FA Cup tie, also scoring with a fine 25-yard strike to seal the tie. This fleet-footed winger made seven appearances at Vicarage Road, whilst spending time on loan with Brentford, Hayes & Yeading and Boreham Wood. He eventually signed for Accrington in 2013 following a temporary stint at the Wham Stadium. Piero helped Stanley to the Play-offs at the end of the 2015/16 campaign, netting a superb goal against AFC Wimbledon in the semi-final before opting for a new challenge at United. He scored 15 times in 144 appearances whilst at Accrington and, then having signed a two-year deal at the Cambs Glass Stadium, netted on his U’s debut against Barnet. He concluded the 2016/17 campaign with seven goals during his 49 games in black and amber.
