There will be two new faces - one a familiar one - in Banbury United’s squad for today’s (Saturday) clash with Weymouth.

Tom Winters has joined the Puritans on a month’s loan from Oxford City while Manny Duku has been signed from Kings Langley.

Winters came through the Oxford United youth system and progressed to make a handful of Football League appearances for them before spending eight seasons with Brackley Town. During that spell he was a key member of the side that earned two promotions, making more than 300 appearances and scoring more than 100 goals for the Saints

The 31-year-old winger left Saints in 2013 to join Oxford City. He spent two season there before moving back last season to St James Park but returned to City in the summer.

Manager Mike Ford has also signed Duku, a 24 year-old Dutch born striker, played his football in Holland, most recently with VV Eemdijk and FC Breukelen.

He spent the first few months of that season with Chesham United before moving to Kings Langley, establishing himself as a regular in the side that won the Central Division Championship last season. Duku made 34 league appearances for Kings Langley this season prior to his transfer.
