RETURNING defender Rob Flooks heads the latest batch of summer additions at Winchester City.

The former Fawley and AFC Totton centre-back has returned to the Denplan City Ground, nine months after dropping out of Southern League football with City and signing for neighbours Alresford Town in the Sydenhams Premier Division.

“It’s a brilliant signing for us,” said Winchester boss Craig Davis. “Rob’s still a young lad, but he’s got great experience.

“He didn’t have the best of seasons last year because of work stuff, but he’s done some of our optional training sessions and looks as fit as a fiddle now.

“There’s a lot of talk saying he could play higher. I think he wants to get his career back on track and it’s great that he thinks this is the place to do it.”

Also new in are three more players from Davis’s old club Fleet Town – Dan Williamson, Simba Mlambo and Brett Stanley – along with young winger Jack Ormiston from Whitchurch United.

Williamson – described by Davis as an “electric-heeled, attack-minded right-back”, includes Marlow and Hungerford Town among his former clubs, while versatile midfielder/right-back Stanley was originally picked up by Davis from AFC Totton youth as a 16-year-old.

Former Alton Town man Mlambo, a pacy wide/front player, has been with Davis for the last four seasons and, along with fellow Fleet captures Rob Carr and Ben ‘Chalky’ White, has regularly hit double figures of goals.

Young winger Ormiston was spotted by City’s new chief scout Pete Millard last season.

“Jack's a young lad with an incredible attitude,” said Davis. “He’s probably a development players at the moment, but who knows how quickly he can develop?”

Davis, meanwhile, has confirmed that City's captain’s and vice-captain’s roles will be filled by Jamie Barron and Adam Tomasso, two of the players he inherited when he took over the reins in March.

“Jamie was excellent with me when I came in. It’s important to have players like him flying the flag for what we are trying to do,” said Davis. “It’s the same with Adam Tomasso and Danny King. They’re Winchester diehards.”

In a change of title, the Southern League Division One South & West will be known as the Evo-Stik South West next season, while the Central Division will be called the Evo-Stik South East.

*Southern League new boys Moneyfields have signed three former Winchester City players - Joe Briggs, Howard Neighbour and Jamie Ford - for their debut Evo-Stik South East season.
