Twenty-seven-year-old defender Calum Duffy is looking to carry his form on into next season.

He is the youngest of four Duffy brothers, sons of former Hanwell Town manager and stalwart Ray Duffy.

His loyalty to the club was proven when he remained with the Isthmian South Central club following his father`s departure at the end of the 2014/15 season, although he did have short spells with Southall and Harefield United.

As each season has passed so his improvement continues and whilst essentially a defender, his versatility enables him to play almost anywhere on the pitch.

He played over 200 games for Hanwell before switching to then- Isthmian League South Central rivals Uxbridge in July 2019 before returning to the Geordies in 2021 and was a regular as they won promotion to Step 3 in 2022/23.

Also committing to the Geordies for 2023/24 is composed defender Callum Woodcock.

The 24-year-old was a summer 2019 signing for Hanwell from Isthmian South Central side Chalfont St Peter having previously played for Chesham United for whom he played 20 first team games having progressed through the under-18 set up.

Kweku Lucan is also staying with the Geordies.

The 25-year-old winger moved to the Powerday Stadium in the summer of 2022 from Isthmian League Premier Division side Billericay Town.

He had moved to New Lodge in September 2021 from Leatherhead, where he had been since early November 2020 after a second spell with Biggleswade Town.

He had signed for Isthmian South Central side Northwood in July 2018 and had previously played for St Albans City, Biggleswade and Wingate & Finchley after being a youth player with Peterborough United.

Jacob Gardiner-Smith has also signed for another year.

The 25-year-old midfielder joined the Geordies in January 2023 from Kings Langley.

He had joined Kings in October 2022 from Cheshunt, who he had moved to in August 2022 from Hemel Hempstead Town.

He had signed for the Tudors in January 2022 from Wycombe Wanderers.

He originally signed for Southern Premier South side Hendon from St Albans City on dual registration in January 2019 and went on to make 16 appearances over the second half of the 2018/19 campaign before making the move a more permanent one in May 2019, but then signing for Wycombe in July 2021.

He came through the ranks at Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg as a youngster and is the son of Labour MP Barry Gardiner.
