KIDLINGTON have announced their first three signings of the summer.

Declan Peart and Dan West were part of the squad last season, while Ryan Markham has also put pen to paper.

Centre halves Peart and West were two key pieces of the puzzle for Ben Sadler’s side.

The Kidlington boss, who committed his future to the club earlier this week, said: “Dec is a powerful centre back who rarely gets flustered.

“He has huge potential to kick on this season and establish himself at this level.

“A number of impressive performances towards the end of last season showed what he is capable of.

“Dan’s a huge talent – strong and dominant in the air and technically very good.

“We’re delighted he’s with us again for another season.”

Markham will add energy in midfield and worked with Sadler in Wantage’s Uhlsport Hellenic League-winning team.

He also has Southern League experience with Didcot Town.
