Two More Join New-look Kidlington

Defender or midfielder Aleks Novakovic and forward George Cowmeadow have signed for Pitching In Southern League Division One Central club Kidlington.

Novakovic is a 21-year-old Serbian who joins the Greens from Highworth Town, where he had been since the summer of 2022 after arriving from Slimbridge.

He had joined the Swans in February 2022 from Wantage Town, having arrived at Alfredian Park in August 2021.

He had switched to the Alfredians from Ardley United, who he signed for in July 2020.

He started out in the Reading academy at the age of 13 and moved to Oxford United`s academy four years later.

He finished off his scholarship career with Vanarama National league side Barnet in 2018 and then spent two years at the Hartpury University in Gloucestershire.

Hoe joined Oxford City in 2020 but played mainly in the National League side’s under-23s.

Manager Mark Massingham told his club’s website: “Aleks impressed during pre-season. He’s been along to most of it and settled in well. He’s a player with a lot of heart and he puts it in to everything he does and has earned respect already. He likes a tackle and is a very good talker, we want players who take responsibility and he does that for sure. He took on playing out of position with so many lads away and owned it and that proved to us he’s the right fit.”

Kidlington have also snapped up forward George Cowmeadow following his release from League Two side Swindon Town.

He is a very direct player with lots of ability to beat a man - a player that excites the fans and can produce something out of nothing.

After starting out at the Procision Football Academy, whilst on Swindon’s books he had loan spells with Slough Town, Poole Town, Swindon Supermarine and, last season, Kidlington.

He had made his Swindon debut in October 2021 in the EFL Trophy against Plymouth Argyle.
