North Leigh Squad Coming Together

Further strengthening of the squad.

Craig Dore and Darren James, joint managers of BetVictor Southern League Division One Central club North Leigh, has added further strength to his squad.

Winger Ekow Elliott arrives having ended the 2018/19 season helping Blackfield & Langley to promotion to the Southern Premier Division South, having been a member of their team that won the Sydenhams Football League (Wessex) Premier title back in 2012. Re-joined Blackfield & Langley from Thatcham Town, who he had success with in winning the Buildbase FA Vase and Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division title. Was previously with Poole Town, for whom he made over 50 appearances.

Experienced 34-year-old midfielder Michael Alexis has returned to Eynsham Park from Isthmian League South Central side Marlow. Originally with Oxford United, Forest Green Rovers and Burton Albion, he has gone on to enjoy a lengthy career in non-League football with the likes of Slough Town, Hemel Hempstead Town, Didcot Town, Slough Town, Abingdon United, Kidlington and Marlow, who he re-joined during the latter part of last season.

Attacking midfielder Billy Gillett joins the Millers following a terrific 2018/19 season with Hellenic Premier Division side Ardley United. A tricky winger with an eye for goal whose previous club was Oxford City.

French striker Nicolas Dupa has also joined the Millers. The 22-year-old Parisian worked his way up the French non-League system at Evey FC, CFFP, Senart-Moissey and Igny and arrives in West Oxfordshire for his first taste of English football.

Two former favourites have also returned to Eynsham Park in Morgan Williams and Callum McNish. Williams is a left-sided midfielder who has re-signed following a couple of years away with Didcot Town. He has switched regularly between North Leigh and Didcot, although he has spent the majority of his career to date with the Millers, for who he has also been a regular scorer.

McNish, like Williams, was part of the club`s most successful season in 2016/17 and he also returns after a stint at rivals Didcot Town. A powerful player, he started out at Southampton and made one senior appearance for the Saints and seven for Exeter City.
