ADAM Learoyd will return for North Leigh next season to continue a busy week for the club.

The defender, a former Didcot Town skipper, joined the Millers at the start of last season.

He quickly went on to become a key figure, starting all 27 South League Division 1 Central games and finishing runner-up in the supporters’ player of the season vote.

Callum McNish is also on board to continue his second spell with the club.

The midfielder, who was a teammate of Learoyd’s at Didcot, scored seven goals and set up another four last season.

Elliott Heritage will be hoping his wait for a debut is nearly over after also agreeing terms.

The attacking midfielder, who came through the ranks at Oxford City, signed in March.

But after being left out of the next game, the season was then scrapped due to coronavirus.

Meanwhile, former North Leigh defender Dan James is on board again at Wantage Town.

He made his debut last August, but injury wiped out most of the campaign, returning just before the season was halted.

No club is further along in their squad building than Kidlington, who have another three players on board.

Midfielder Lewis Gabbidon returns to the club he captained to the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division title.

Energetic full back Mark Flanagan was also part of that side, while he went on to win a second title with Wantage Town under Kidlington boss Ben Sadler.

Tall forward Kaylem Patterson brings something different to their forward line and will be aiming to stay clear of injuries.
