Bostik League Premier club Metropolitan Police have announced the signing of striker Lewis Putman from Slough Town.

Twenty-seven-year-old Putman was the first summer signing in 2015 for Slough`s joint bosses Neil Baker and Jon Underwood.

He was a prolific striker who made his name with Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division Oxhey Jets where in one season he scored 84 goals.

This alerted a number of clubs, including Wealdstone who signed him, but an unfortunate ACL injury sustained shortly after, whilst playing Slough in a pre-season game, meant he missed that entire season.

In season 2014/15 he spent his time with Hanwell Town Aylesbury United and Barton Rovers on his fitness comeback before signing for Slough.

Manager Jim Cooper said: “We have been after him for the past five or six years and I know he will absolutely light up the league for us this season.

“I am hoping to announce a couple more big signings over the next couple of days”.
