Firstly I would like to thank 3 of the younger players of the squad that we have recently parted company with in order that they can get regular football elsewhere. They are Aaron Rhule, Tom O'Connor & Joshua Oyinsan. All three of these lads were a credit to themselves and I would like thank them for being part of the sqaud during a very challanging transition period. Aaron, Tom & Joshua all have a bright future in the game and I look forward to monitoring their progess.
I am delighted to announce 3 more experienced signings to our new look squad.
Tyrone Berry (Midfield/ Winger)
Tyronne joins us from Conference South side Farnborough where he has been on fire for them recently. In fact in Tyrone's last game for Farnborough on Tuesday night he scored two goals and got Man of The Match before signing for us. Prior to Farnborough Tyrone was at Tooting & Mitcham. Tyronne started his career at Crystal Palace's academy, he went on to gain Football League experience with Crystal Palace, Notts County, Rushden & Diamonds and Gillingham. At Gillingham he was a part of the squad which won promotion from League Two. Previous clubs also include Crawley Town, Stevenage Borough, Grays Athletic, York City, Forest Green Rovers, Burgess Hill Town, Eastbourne and Hayes & Yeading. Tyrone was also an England Youth Team International and Captain.
Merrick James-Lewis (Holding Midfield)
Merrick also joins us from Conference South side Farnborough.
Merrick is another former Professinal Footballer.
He started at Fulham's Academy before joining Southend United and signed a Pro Contract with them. Whilst at Southend he had a loan spell at Conference side Braintree before signing for Colchester United.
Nick Taylor (Goalkeeper)
We are delighted to finally be able to sign a recognised keeper to be our official No.2 to back up Darren Behcet.

He then had Pro contracts at Woking followed by Dagenham & Redbridge.
Darren's Non League clubs have included Hemel Hempstead, Fisher Athletic, Kingstonian, Sutton United and Tooting & Mitcham.
