Binfield FC sign ‘dominant’ centre back

Binfield manager Roger Herridge has confirmed the Hill Farm Lane side have signed centre back Idris Kamara.

Kamara was part of the Woodley United squad that won promotion to the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division in 2016/17 and captained the side during its first step five campaign.

The defender – who was voted the division’s player of the season – was a target for Binfield in the summer following Woodley’s relegation back to Division One East but ultimately joined Bostik League South Central Division One side Marlow.

Speaking to Football in Bracknell, Herridge said: “I wanted to sign him in the summer. I said we needed another dominant centre back so Idris is just perfect.”

Kamara made seven appearances for Marlow this season. The Buckinghamshire side are fourth in the division and look good for the Bostik League play offs.

Kamara said: “At this stage of my career I’m keen to get back to playing week in week out. Hopefully I’ll be able to help the team climb up the league and finish the season strong.”

Binfield reached the semi finals of the Perpetua Press Floodlit Cup on Tuesday night after beating Windsor 4-1 at Stag Meadow.

The Moles head to Flackwell Heath on Saturday – the full fixture list for the weekend is here – and then host Ardley United at Hill Farm Lane on Monday night.
