New Hayes & Yeading United manager Mickey Lewis has moved quickly to make his first acquisition with former Swindon Town and Torquay United forward Lloyd Macklin agreeing terms with the Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division new boys for 2016/17.
Macklin joins from another side relegated from the Vanarama National League South with Hayes & Yeading at the end of the 2015/16 season, Basingstoke Town.
The 24-year-old had been at the Camrose since the summer of 2014 after joining from Chippenham Town.
Originally with Swindon, he signed for Torquay on a permanent basis in June 2010 following a successful loan spell.
He left Plainmoor for Farnborough in October 2013 and then onto Chippenham just two months later.
