KIDLINGTON’S squad for next season is already into double figures after four more of last term’s line-up signed on.

Experienced centre back Tommy Franklin will again be an influential figure on and off the field.

He is joined by three midfielders who also know the club well.

Tom Moore stepped up from the development team last season and was in fine form when the South League season was brought to a halt in March.

Aaron Morton had a similar experience and will be looking to make the most of his first full season in the senior eam.

Box-to-box midfielder Ben Willoughby completes the latest batch of deals and is a key piece of the jigsaw for boss Ben Sadler.

  • WANTAGE Town have confirmed they will begin

pre-season training next month.

At this stage there is no date for the start of the next South League Division 1 Central campaign.

But with hopes it could come in September, Town are among the clubs to begin holding sessions – while following the latest guidelines.

They have also confirmed the signing of former Brackley Town and Banbury United midfielder James Watts.
