The Evo-Stik League Southern

....the signing of 30-year-old midfielder Ollie Burgess from league rivals Chertsey Town.
Burgess leaves Chertsey in the wake of former Curfews owner and first-team manager Spencer Day leaving to join Farnborough last week.
He is a versatile player, capable of playing in the middle or on the right side of the pitch, and started his career at Queens Park Rangers, scoring one goal from ten appearances.
He made a further nine League appearances for Northampton Town before his career was cut short by a serious knee injury.
A move into non-League football saw Burgess reignite his career and he has been a regular scorer from the middle of the park in recent seasons, with spells at Kettering Town, Nuneaton Borough, Corby Town, Brackley Town, and Hemel Hempstead Town, where he played under Bateman and with many of the current Rebels squad.
He was part of the successful Corby team which won promotion to the Blue Square Bet North.
He has scored three goals for Chertsey this season, and is available for selection in Saturday's match at Biggleswade Town.
Meanwhile, Charlie Mpi has decided to leave Slough in search of regular football, and has joined up with landlords and promotion rivals Beaconsfield SYCOB.
Mpi scored one goal in his twenty-two appearances for the Rebels, the vast majority of which were from the bench, and ironically he equaled that total on his debut for SYCOB on Saturday!
