The 31-year-old started the 2022/23 season with SSML Division One outfit Real Bedford before joining Shefford in September 2022.

He signed for Southern Premier Division Central side Biggleswade Town in November 2019 from Barton Rovers.

An experienced keeper, he also made 133 appearances for Rovers between 2012 and 2017 and played for Ware, Aylesbury FC, London Colney, Kings Langley and Bedford Town before re-joining Barton in the summer of 2019.

Midfielder or defender Luke Abraham joins Rovers from league rivals AFC Dunstable, having also been on dual registration with SSML Premier Division side Crawley Green this season.

The 32-year-old had signed for the OD’s in 2018 after a four-season stay at Arlesey Town.

Before that, he has had an array of clubs including Aylesbury Vale Dynamos, Hemel Hempstead Town, Chesham United, Arlesey Town, Barton Rovers and Dunstable Town.

He was dual registered with Leverstock Green in 2018/19.

Combative young midfielder Louie Tigwell is another to return `home` to Barton-le-Clay.

The 19-year-old developed in Rovers` youth team before moving up a level to join Southern Premier Division Central side Royston Town in early December 2021.
