Garry Hill has added his second new recruit to the Fleet squad ahead of this weekend’s trip to AFC Fylde.
Experienced central defender Bondz N’Gala, who spent last season with Crawley Town in League Two, becomes the 20th member of the Fleet squad and will wear the No.20 shirt that Academy player Emilio Regini-Moran was registered with for the Bromley game.
East Londoner N’Gala, 29, came through West Ham’s academy from the age of 13, spending eight years with his local club. In that time he was loaned out to Weymouth, MK Dons, Scunthorpe United and Plymouth Argyle, signing for the latter permanently in 2010.
The 6ft 2in centre-back spent the following season at Yeovil Town – Fleet’s next opponents at home – and enjoyed his third season at League One level with Stevenage in 2012/13.
A season at Portsmouth followed before he dropped into the Conference with Barnet, being a key part of their title-winning side in 2014/15 and turning out for the Bees the following season in League Two.
After a spell at Eastleigh, N’Gala was famously signed by Gillingham but couldn’t play because of league rulings on the numbers of clubs players could register for in a season. He went on to feature for Dover Athletic, Dagenham & Redbridge and Leyton Orient before signing for Crawley Town last season.
We’d like to welcome Bondz to the club as he goes into the squad for the match at Mill Farm this Saturday.
