Darren Freeman has signed young midfielder Stefan Ilic after a series of impressive pre-season performances.

Stefan, 20, signs from Tooting and Mitcham after making several appearances for the Rooks in pre-season. The creative midfielder has impressed with his ability to pick a pass and create chances.

“Stefan has been very impressive in pre-season,” said manager Darren Freeman. “He’s very young, at only 20 years of age, but he’s very exciting to watch.

“It’s a step up for Stefan and we need to make sure we fit him into our system.

“He’s someone who will suit our style of football. He’s very confident on the ball and has silky skills.”

Stefan will be part of the squad that travels to Imber Court to take on the Met Police in tomorrow’s pre-season friendly.
