Sydenhams Football League (Wessex) Premier promotion-chasers Andover Town have added another attacker to their squad.

The leaders have signed midfielder Harrison Gilkes on a dual registration from Evo-Stik South Premier outfit Slough Town.

The 24-year-old played for Andover boss Glenn Burnett at New Milton Town six years ago on loan from Premier League AFC Bournemouth.

He also had a loan spell at AFC Totton and, following his release by the Cherries, played for Poole Town and Basingstoke Town where he linked up with his dad, Michael, the former Reading favourite.

Gilkes joined Slough from Basingstoke in the summer of 2016 but has been hampered by injuries since moving to Arbour Park.

He missed the whole of last season after rupturing an anterior cruciate ligament in a pre-season friendly at Fleet Town.

He finally made his league debut for Slough in October only to suffer another injury set-back.
