Title: Ex-Ducks
Post by: Luke on February 21, 2019, 11:27:12 AM
From casting my eye around the leagues this week, I see Chid Onokwai has joined Hayes & Yeading United. He is 4th in the this season's Bostik League South Central goalscorers with 17 goals for Marlow and FC Romania.

Elsewhere Lewis Putman - having failed to really settle anywhere since Slough Town - is back scoring goals for Oxhey Jets. Always thought it was only a matter of time before he returned there.

If only we needed a striker, eh?

Post by: Fishy Plums on March 08, 2019, 12:27:44 PM


Doesnt seem possible that Dominic Iorfa was 20 years ago, back in the season with Ugly Bob.

His wiki page shows quite a few moves back in that year, not sure how accurate it is of course, but Gravesend managed 6 games out of him. He only seemed to manage a couple of games at the several other clubs he was at. Although I suspect he was serving a suspension here and there with his potty mouth  :D

The page also says this:

"He enjoyed a successful spell in the Irish Premier League with Waterford United and was adored by the fans, despite missing a penalty on his debut. To this day, his yellow Puma boots are still worn by the clubs kitman who received the boots off Iorfa shortly before he left the club."

Another 2 in the 'much better everywhere else' category. Both were pretty much ever present for Potters Bar and Casey had a good scoring record there, as he does so far at Chesham I think.

OK this isn't an ex duck but it's interesting watching Portsmouth v Sunderland and seeing Ollie Hawkins up front for Pompey.  I've been reading the match reports from the 4 games he played against us.  His first was for Hillingdon Borough (came on as a HT sub, marked by Fritzy!) in front of 58 people, a bit different from the 20k he's in front of tonight!

Agree it has been interesting seeing his rise. I remember him being a gangly and not particularly great striker against us, so a little surprised to see how well he's done!

Recent loan 'stars' Benji Aghadiuno and Dejon Noel-Williams were both released at the end of the season, from Barnet and Oxford United respectively.

The latter signed for Wealdstone where he was one of new manager Dean Brennan's first signings. He'll link up with another ex-Duck Stuart Maynard who follows Brennan everywhere he goes is assistant manager.
Title: Re: Ex-Ducks
Post by: Lee on July 05, 2019, 02:57:28 PM
Brennan and Maynard should never have let themselves get tempted by the £££ of Billericay. They should do ok at Wealdstone, a far more sensibly run club.

Lewis Osborne rejoins Aylesbury United! I must've seen him play in that near relegation season, but for the life of me i can't remember anything about it him. Perhaps senility is starting to kick in, but anyone got any thoughts, recollections?
Title: Re: Ex-Ducks

Injuries didn't do him any favours. Looks like they've settled down as he played 40 odd games last season so he will be a good acquisition.

Setting him up for a fall I know, but I really liked him - intelligent midfielder who could get forward and had an eye for an incisive pass. Always thought it a shame we never got to see more of him.

Few ex Ducks plying their trade with new clubs in the South Mids this season - Alex Little now at Winslow, Ben Gallant has joined Pitstone, whilst Reece Ccameron is turning out for Oxhey Jets. BTW the legendary Vinny Shrieves is still on the go with MK Robins

Yes, Alex came on in Winslow's FA cup game the other weekend and Vinny played against us in the pre-season friendly at MK Robins.

I see Tre scored for Bedford on Saturday. Bedford tweeted a picture of him celebrating with a caption along the lines of 'this is how much scoring your first goal for Bedford means'. I felt like replying 'yes until someone offers £10 a game more' but thought better of it!
