Louis Langdown, manager of Evo-Stik League Southern Division One South & West club AFC Totton, has moved quickly to bolster his squad for 2017/18.
He has snapped up forward Toby Adekunle from Sydenhams Football League (Wessex) League Premier Division neighbours Team Solent.
Langdown is thrilled to get his man after identifying the player early in the recruitment process having spent many an evening at Testwood Park watching Adekunle perform very well in a good Team Solent outfit.
At 22, Adekunle has a very good footballing background having come through the academy at Queens Park Rangers and further grounding at Wessex League level with Sholing and Team Solent before dual signing for Southern Premier Division outfit Basingstoke Town.
Adekunle said: “For me the move to AFC Totton will hopefully help me push on and progress as high as I can in football. I am looking forward to working with Louis and Adam and joining a good squad of players.”
Meanwhile, The Stags have also secured the services of Alfy Whittingham on a season-long loan deal from Vanarama National South new boys Havant & Waterlooville.
Whittingham fits the profile of the player AFC Totton want as he plays with energy and commitment.
His displays got better and better and we look forward to seeing him progress into an excellent southern league player at only 18 years of age.
‘AFC Totton was the only place I wanted to be, it’s a well run club with good staff and ambition. Louis and Adam have given me the chance to play regularly and helped me massively with coaching and confidence. We have a good group of lads and I can’t wait to get started again. Up the Stags’.
