The Slough Town reunion at Aylesbury FC continued this week when Steve Bateman brought in another player from his old club.

The Moles boss has signed 10 players since arriving at the club just over two weeks ago, many of whom have played for him in the past at Slough.

And his latest recruit is no different as striker Sean Sonner joined the club on Thursday.

The former England Under 18 Schoolboys player will renew his strike partnership with another former Slough man, Bateman’s first signing Danny Burnell.

Sonner has previously been at Borehmwood where he signed from Northwood after scoring 17 goals in 24 appearances.

He then joined Slough on loan and signed permanently in January 2010 forming a successful partnership with Burnell.

The 27 year old has also played for Hendon, Harefield United and Sun Postal Sports.

In season 2010/11, Sonner finished as Slough’s second top scorer with 14 goals, and his performances led to him being named the Supporters’ player of the season.

Aylesbury FC’s official website said Sonner scored 18 goals in 2011/12 and was a firm fans’ favourite with the Rebels faithful with his never-say-die attitude and work ethic.

The signing of Sonner furthers Bateman’s overhaul of the FC squad and comes hot on the heels of the signings of forward Bradley Wadkins and defender Simon Sweeney, also former Slough players.

FC got their first point in 10 games thanks to a 0-0 draw with fellow strugglers North Greenford United last weekend and entertain Ketterting Town on Saturday (3pm).
