Witham reinforce their midfield

Witham Town have strengthened their midfield with the acquisition of Cockfosters midfielder Ahmed Mohammed, who will no longer be able to take the Piccadilly Line to work.

Ahmed formerly played for Hertford Town, but his off field story is- and you won't read this statement often- far more important than football. He arrived in this country as a refugee escaping war aged fourteen, unable to speak English, ended up in foster care, and yet managed to leave school in Tottenham with ten GCSE's. These days he works near to where he was educated, for Tottenham Hotspur, where he helps keep young people away from a life of crime as an Employment Advisor.

He previously played for Ware, Hanwell Town, North Greenford United. Waltham Forest and Reading Town.
