WINCHESTER City have welcomed back promising, young midfielder/forward IK Hill to the club.

Hill returns to the Simplyhealth City Ground from Sydenhams Premier outfit Alresford Town where he has made 17 appearances this season, scoring four goals.

Hill, who was closely monitored by Portsmouth scouts two seasons ago, left Winchester last May in order to get more game time.

“Hopefully his experience there will have helped his development and he can give us a lift in our upcoming games,” said director of football Dave Malone.

Meanwhile City midfielder Matt Benham has dual-signed with Bitton of the Western League in order to get some much-needed minutes under his belt.

Benham is a student at Bath University, so Bitton will be within easy reach.

This Saturday (3pm) Winchester travel to rock-bottom Fleet Town in the Evo-Stik Division One South.
