We are delighted to announce the signings of experienced winger James Dayton and exciting young striker Marcus Wyllie.
Enfield-born James, who began his career at Crystal Palace, most recently turned out for Dulwich Hamlet – and also counts Leyton Orient, Oldham and Kilmarnock among his former sides.
Manager Andy Leese (pictured with James) commented: “We are very pleased to get James to the club. He’s a very experienced player who will bring some real quality to the group.”
“As an ex-professional with plenty of promotions under his belt, he brings a winning mentality into the squad. He’s a great lad who really wanted to be here. He’s an Enfield lad who and returns to where his football journey began as a young boy.”
Also joining us this season is exciting young striker Marcus Wyllie. Marcus signs from Risborough Rangers, who described him as having “the ability to score goals at will” – he chalked up an impressive 36 of them last term.
“Marcus has come to us highly recommended by no less than one of ETFC’s former favourites!” said the manager. “He has developed in the last two seasons, and is hungry to take his chance at this level. We look forward to working with Marcus in pre-season and hopefully he will pick up where he left off last season scoring goals.”
After 94 appearances, seven goals and a stint as captain across a couple of spells with us, midfielder Percy Kiangebeni has departed the club. We thank Percy for his service and wish him all the best. We hope to bring you more news of how the squad is taking shape over the coming days.
