Aylesbury FC have sealed something of a coup with the signing of former Queens Park Rangers and Northampton Town midfielder Ollie Burgess.

Burgess is the latest addition to Steve Bateman’s squad who joins from the manager’s old club Slough Town.

A versatile midfielder, Burgess is capable of playing in the middle or on the right side of the pitch.

He started his career at Queens Park Rangers, scoring one goal from 10 appearances. He made a further nine league appearances for Northampton Town before his career was cut short by a serious knee injury.

A move into non-league football saw Burgess reignite his career, and he has been a regular scorer from the middle of the park in recent seasons, with spells at Kettering Town, Nuneaton Borough, Corby Town, Brackley Town, and Hemel Hempstead, where he played under Bateman.

He was also part of the successful Corby team which won promotion to the Conference North.
