Double signing to boost misfiring United

Hayes & Yeading United have added further depth to their forward line by signing Pat Cox from Southern League side Fleet Town.

Cox has 13 league goals this season for both Fleet and Guildford City and steps up to Conference South level after spells at Bashley and Gosport Borough.

He is expected to join up with the United squad for their match at Bishop’s Stortford on Thursday night, alongside Kidderminster Harriers loanee Freddie Ladapo.

The Nigerian-born Ladapo, who has been on United’s radar for most of the season, made his debut for Phil Babb’s side in their 2-1 loss at Staines on Tuesday.

He joined Kiddy in January after leaving Colchester, coming on as a substitute in the Conference club’s FA Cup third round tie at Sunderland and almost snatching a late equaliser.

While at Colchester, he had spells on loan in the Conference Premier with Woking and Nuneaton.

The pair replace Kiernan Hughes-Mason and Inih Effiong, who have returned to Welling United and Chesham respectively after their loan spells expired.
