Chairman Rob O'Brien welcomes Jay Leader to Barking FC

We are pleased to the announce the signing of Jay Leader for Barking FC.

Joint manager Justin Gardner describes Jay as 'the best centre half in non-league football' and resumes a working relationship that covers previous clubs Bethnal Green and Aveley.

Chairman Rob O'Brien commented: 'This signing is a massive step for a club that has been developing  slowly over the past five years. A local boy who wants to play for his local club is a massive statement for us. I have seen Jay walk past the club on numerous occasions and always thought it would be a great day if we could sign him. Well that day has come. Credit goes to all the club's management team Glen, Steve and Justin.'

Other clubs on Jay's CV include Canvey Island, Cray Wanderers, Grays Athletic and East Thurrock United.

Welcome Jay and hopefully this is the start of a long career with Barking FC.
