Ryman League Division One North club Aveley have announced the signings of seven players.

The confirmed signings are Billy Coyne, Perry Dunn, James Marrable, Michael Pindy, Arian Retkoceri, Abs Seymour and Jack Edwards have all committed for the 2016/17 season.

Defender or midfielder Coyne was with the club through large parts of the 2014/15 season and then the last few months of last season after returning from AFC Hornchurch.

He is a very accomplished right-back and also has the ability playing in midfield.

Dunn is a towering defender who didn’t get off to the best of starts at the club at the beginning of last season. However, in his second spell he came back and forged a superb partnership with Brian Okwera in which helped keep four clean sheets in the last six matches and also pitched in with 3 goals.

Goalkeeper Marrable is a fans` favourite, having won the supporters` player of the season award the last two years.

At Aveley in his first spell he also helped the Millers achieve promotion to the Ryman Premier Division, and he is set for his third successive season at Mill Field between the sticks.

Pindy is a rapid player who impressed with his explosive pace getting in behind and unlocking defences.

He impressed against Aveley for Waltham Abbey and then joined the Millers, scoring on his debut last season away at eventual Ryman North champions AFC Sudbury with a header.

Retkoceri is a central midfielder who missed the start of last season due to an injury but came back and showed again how good he is on the ball.

He was then ever-present in the side, making twenty-eight appearances and contributing to 8 goals.

His previous clubs include; Stevenage Borough, Billericay Town and Waltham Forest.

Seymour is a combative player who won the players` and managers` player of the year awards for 2015/16.

Having joined from Romford last season, he impressed with his tackling and crossing abilities with a dozen assists in forty-seven appearances.

Midfielder Edwards started his career at Southend United in the youth set-up after rejecting fellow Essex side, Colchester United.

He went on to captain the Southend youth side until he was released by Phil Brown in 2014.

He joined the Millers from Billerciay Town last season, initially on a two-month loan deal, but eventually joined until the end of the season.

During his time at the club he was a real prominent figure in the heart of midfield.

Despite an injury which kept him out for two-three weeks, he came back into the side and showed how good he can be for the Millers.

Millers boss Justin Gardner said: “It was very important to keep this group together and then to add quality. And these lads get to lead us out of this stadium and into the new ground.”
