It has been a busy time at York Road this summer and there have been yet more comings and goings at Maidenhead United ahead of their 2020/21 Vanarama National League season.

Two more new signings were announced on Monday night, with left back George Wells moving from one Berkshire club to another.  The 24-year-old signs for the Magpies a matter of weeks after competing in the National League South play-offs for Slough Town. Wells – previously with Hampton and Kingstonian – made 143 appearances for the Arbour Park side and was voted Rebels Supporters Player of the Year at the end of his debut season in 2017/18.

Wells’ former team mate, Scott Davies, who departed Slough at the same time, recently signed on for Southern League Biggleswade Town.

The other Monday evening Maidenhead arrival was 28-year-old winger Dan Sparkes – who most recently played a regular part for Barnet as they reached the National League play-offs – who has reunited with Alan Devonshire having served under the Magpies gaffer at Braintree earlier in his career. Sparkes made close on 150 appearances for the Iron, scoring 19 times, and has also gained National League experience with spells at Torquay United and Dagenham & Redbridge prior to joining the Bees.
