Another mega signing after Tuesday training plus three more confirmed.

By Stephen King

A former Football League player; a pillar of our defence; a product of our development process; and one of Kem's old boys all signed on Tuesday.

Ahmed Abdulla is a central midfielder who was born in Saudi Arabia of Yemeni and Somali descent before moving to London at the age of eight. His skills and technique have had coach Kevin Kuhn purring and he sees him as one of the best signings the club has made. He certainly comes with a good track record and turned down chances with other clubs higher in the pyramid to play at Ware.

After starting in the Arsenal youth set up Ahmed moved to West Ham United and had spells with Swindon Town under Paolo Di Canio, and Dagenham & Redbridge before moving to Barnet where he played alongside Edgar Davids.

His non-league career has seen him at Staines and Whitehawk from whom he was loaned to Metropolitan Police, the club Ahmed joins us from. Incidentally he had two spells at Whitehawk covering the 2014/5 and 2016/7 seasons, neatly sandwiching the time former Ware man Scott Neilson spent at the Sussex club in 2015/6.

Left back Alaa Oujdi needs no introduction. He made his debut for the club in the 3-2 home win over Erith & Belvedere on 11th March 2014 and has gone on to make 128 appearances for the first team (which he has also captained on occasions) and scored his first goal for the club in the 1-0 win over Great Wakering towards the end of last season.

Warren Kayembe has played for the under-21s and youth sides in the last two seasons but has now signed first team forms for the club.

Prince Madu who made 26 appearances for Waltham Forest last season during Kem's successful term as manager there.

Where next?

League fixtures come out with a disappointment. The much anticipated local derbies with Hertford are shunted to normal Saturdays whilst Boxing Day and Easter Monday both see us travelling.
