Aylesbury FC boss Craig Faulconbridge says the club has pulled off something of a coup with the signing of former Queens Park Rangers youth striker Leon Osei.

The pacy forward joins the Moles from Northwood and also lists Stevenage Borough among his former clubs.

Faulconbridge said the Ghanaian had become somewhat disillusioned with football after dropping out of the league. But he insists FC is the right club to get Osei’s career back on track.

“Leon is very, very good technically,” Faulconbridge said.

“He’s very skilful and he’s a tall guy and great at bringing others in to play. He was at Northwood and we are really pleased to have got him in.

“He’s a player that has dropped out of the league and lost his way a little bit and I think we are the right club to help him get back to enjoying his football again.”

Osei has also previously played for Wingate and Finchley, Dorchester Town and Newport County.

While at Northwood he joined Enfield Town in October 2010 and returned to the Wood this season.

The striker is a direct replacement for Jonathan Constant, who left the club last week.

Meanwhile, Faulconbridge, who was angry that his side’s match at Daventry on Saturday was called off (see back page), revealed he is also in talks to bring in another player.

The Moles boss is concerned that further fixture pile-ups stretch his squad to the limit over the festive period and he is keen to beef up his numbers.
