Joyce Makes First Signings For Walnut Boys

Tony Joyce, the new manager of Evo-Stik Southern League Division One Central club Kempston Rovers, has made his first new signings since taking over from Gary Flinn and Jimmy Stoyles.

Three of the players have previously been at Kempston.

Striker Scott Joseph had spells with the Walnut Boys in 2013/14 and 2014/15, before joining AFC Rushden & Diamonds, and more recently St Ives Town.

Secondly returning to the club is United Counties League title-winner Ieuan Riley.

Central midfielder Riley was an instrumental part of the `double` winning side in 2015/16 having previously been with Newport Pagnell Town and Buckingham Town.

The third re-signing is midfielder Kye Andrews, who joins from neighbours and league rivals Bedford Town.

Andrews played for Rovers in 2016/17 before heading to Arlesey Town and then the Eagles.

The fourth signing is something of a coup for Kempston in vastly experienced 33-year-old Izale McLeod.


McLeod recently returned to one of his former clubs, MK Dons, as a Business Sales Executive.

Formerly with Derby County, Charlton Athletic, Barnet, Crawley Town and Portsmouth, McLeod has spent the latter part of his career at Yeovil Town, Corby and Wrexham.

He scored 143 times in 456 appearances in the professional game.
