Hungerford take a look at ex-Spur Ollie

Luke Williams - recovering from knock

HUNGERFORD TOWN will have former Tottenham youngster 'Scott' Olumide 'Ollie' Durojaiye in their squad for tonight’s Berks and Bucks Senior Cup tie at Didcot Town.

The ex-Spurs youngster was a regular in Norwich City’s under 21 side before the defender was taken to Falkirk by former team-mate Gary Holt.

He also had a loan spell at Brechin City before returning to England to play for Hayes and Yeading, Enfield Town and Haringey Borough.

The 23-year old was recommended to Hungerford manager Bobby Wilkinson and trained with the club last week…

“He looked good then,” said Wilkinson, “so we’ve signed him to play tonight so we can have a really good look at him and see how he goes.”

Durojaiye will line up in a team including Nicky Shorey and Jon Boardman while Nat Jarvis and Diak John are likely to be rested. Luke Williams may also have a limited role after he was excused FA Cup duty at Basingstoke on Saturday to rest a knock.

Hungerford’s Academy side will take their turn to travel to Didcot Town on Thursday in the First Qualoifying Round of the FA Youth Cup.

THATCHAM TOWN will also have a new signing in their ranks for tonight’s Hellenic League game with Royal Wootton Bassett at Waterside Park.

Manager Danny Robinson has lured striker Nile O’Meally-Newell from Henley Town after he netted six times in a dozen appearances for the Premier Division side this term.
