And then there were nine! Overhaul continues

Steve Bateman’s overhaul of the Aylesbury FC squad continues apace as forward Bradley Wadkins and defender Simon Sweeney signed up for the Moles fight.

It means Bateman has now brought in nine players since taking over two weeks ago. Former Chesham, Hemel and Slough right back Sweeney has an interesting past, having been the first ever player to be signed by AFC Wimbledon for a transfer fee.

He has twice played for Bateman before and will bring a wealth of experience at the back as the Moles look to tighten things up in a bid to climb up the league.

Sweeney is joined by attacking midfielder-cum-striker Wadkins, who impressed on his debut against North Greenford United on Saturday.

Wadkins joins fellow Calor Southern League side Potters Bar Town where he was an important part of the first team.

The forward came through the youth and reserve teams at Chesham United and featured in the first team set up in the Southern League. He has since had spells at Chalfont St Peter and last season St Albans City, where he scored on his debut in the Premier Division.
