Darren Freeman has shored up his midfield for the New Year with the signing of Olumide Oluwatimilehin from Three Bridges.
Olumide is a strong, physical presence in midfield and will provide competition for places in the centre of the park.
He first caught Darren’s eye when playing for Whyteleafe against the Rooks last season, and Darren is pleased to bring the 24-year-old to The Dripping Pan.
“He’s someone we’ve played against a few times. He caught my eye at Whyteleafe and I’ve inquired about him before but he wasn’t available at the time. With the amount of games Hammo, Michael and Omarr have played this year, it’s important we have competition for places. If we can get good competition in every position, so that everyone ups their game by five or ten per cent, we’ll be in a good place.”
Olu will go straight into the squad for the visit of Burgess Hill Town on New Year’s Day (subject to his registration being cleared by the league), as the Rooks seek to continue their promotion push against Simon Wormull’s Hillians. Kick-off is at 3pm.
