A duo return to E17

By Ian Townsend

Ollie Sotoyinbo and Bilal Sayoud are back in Walthamstow

Walthamstow yesterday announced the return of two former heroes, Ollie Sotoyinbo and Bilal Sayoud reinforcing their Play Off push.

Forward Ollie comes in from Brightlingsea Regent, where he has scored nine goals in twelve matches.

Ollie spent time at Chatham Town towards the end of last season, making six appearances as the Chats won the Pitching In isthmian South East title. He moved to Kent from Stowmarket Town, where he delivered a rather impressive eight goals in thirteen, and started the season with Regent, who he played for twelve times with two goals.

He started his career in Sussex, where he played for Hastings United, Eastbourne United and Haywards Heath Town, and he has also spent time with Leatherhead and Hullbridge Sports.

Prior to his first spell with Regent he was with Welling Town.

He was a big part of the Stow side which won the Essex Senior League.

Bilal has played at a higher level, particularly with Enfield Town and Wingate and Finchley, but also briefly with Potters Bar Town and Hendon, after starting his career with Coventry City. He also played for Metropolitan Police.

He made fourteen appearances for Enfield Town last season, before making a first move to Stow, where his efforts helped his side to qualify for the Play Offs. He started this season with Hemel Hempstead Town in National League South.
