Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central club Farnborough have announced the departure of Charlie Allen and the arrivals of Michael Onovwigun and Femi Orenuga.

Onovwigun joins Boro from Ryman League Premier Division side Kingstonian, who he signed for towards the end of August.

The 6`3” midfielder had signed for K`s league rivals Dulwich Hamlet, but plaued only once at the start of the season.

The 20-year-old made four appearances in two seasons as a professional with Chesterfield before his release in the summer.

He also gained experience on loan with Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division South side Sheffield FC as well as Vanarama National League Gateshead and National League North outfit Stalybridge Celtic whilst on the Spireites books.

Winger Orenuga joins from NPL Premier Division side Corby Town, where he had been since May.

Orenuga started his career at Southend United, where he became the youngest player to appear for the club after he came on as a sub against Luton Town in the 2008/09 FA Cup.

His impressive displays for the Shrimpers earned him a move to Premier League side Everton for a reported £30,000 in 2009.

After three years with the Toffees and a loan spell at Notts County the talented winger then joined AFC Telford United, spending two seasons at the New Bucks Head.

He has also enjoyed spells at Whitehawk, Raufoss in Norway, Gloucester City and Wealdstone.

Manager Spencer Day commented: “Charlie was a short-term arrangement before he returned overseas for six months and we wish him the best.

“Both news lads come from excellent pedigrees of Chesterfield and Southend United respectively but have also good non-League experience at Kingstonian and Corby recently.

“We desperately need additions with injuries and illness causing severe disruption at a busy time of the season.

“Both lads have come in to earn a longer-term deal and have started very well and give me options that we need and are exciting additions to the squad.

“I can also announce that Sam Pearce’s loan from Gosport Borough has been extended until January 18th”.
