Boss Steve Bateman starts reshaping squad with a vengeance as six more join Aylesbury FC including new assistant manager Steve Perkins.

Bateman said he would ‘not hang around’ if players did not step up to the plate to turn the Moles’ season around and he has been true to his word.

In addition to Danny Burnell, Bateman has added six more players to his squad, one of whom will be his assistant manager, Steve Perkins.

Bateman has brought in two new keepers in James Warrington and James Weatherill. Like forward Burnell, Warrington is another former Slough player.

Weatherill joins from Amersham Town having also been with Leverstock Green and Chesham United.

Young left back Connor Blake joins having played for Hitchin Town and Chesham and is joined by the versatile Adam Logie who can operate in central midfield or defence. Logie started his career at Brentford before joining Burnham.

Midfielder Sam Bateman is another ex-Slough player and has previously been at another local rival, Hemel Hempstead.

Bateman’s new right hand man Perkins will also be registered as a player and could be utilised in the centre of defence.
