Slough Town sign up goalkeeper Jonathan North for new season

Slough Town have signed up another ‘valued' member of last season's squad for the forthcoming campaign.

In a statement released on Sunday, joint manager Neil Baker revealed that goalkeeper Jonathan North would remain as a Rebel having been a consistent and reliable presence between the sticks for the club last season.

The Rebels released their retained list for the 2022/23 campaign last week and the press release said talks were continuing with a couple of players, including North.

Baker said: “Northy had a very good season for us and is a valued member within the changing room among his fellow players and the management team.

“He has shown great loyalty and commitment to stay with us and we look forward to welcoming him back.”

North is the latest Slough player to commit to the club next season, with the likes of new club captain Scott Davies, vice-captain Josh Jackman, Lee Togwell and Matt Lench having already agreed to stay on.

A couple of key players have though departed, in the form of striker Ben Harris and defender Freddie Grant, while the club haven’t yet tied down midfielder Aaron Kuhl.

Many emerging talents from the club's increasingly prominent and successful u23s Academy will again be part of the first team picture next season including Gabe George, Joe Dandy, Eitel Goueth and Imran Kayani. Edon Pruti and George Hunt - who both made a big impact for the Rebels last season - are also set to stay.

Joe Lawal, and several others from the u23s stable, are set to return for pre-season alongside striker turned central defender Ryan Bird, who is keen to prove his fitness after missing most of last season with a long-term injury.

Slough Town are also seeking a new manager for the Rebels' Ladies team ahead of the season.

Slough Town Rebels play in the Thames Valley Counties Women’s Football League (TVCWFL) Division 3, with home matches taking place at Arbour Park on Sundays.
