Leamington manager Paul Holleran has pulled off something of a coup by signing former York City attacker Kaine Felix.

The 22-year-old, an unused substitute when the two sides met last month, was released by the Minstermen last week having made 24 appearances for the former Football League club, scoring once.

Formerly at St Neots Town and Boston United where his form earned him a call-up to the England C squad, Felix ended last season on loan at Stockport County and Holleran believes the move to the Phillips 66 Community Stadium is just what the Huntingdon-born forward needs to kick-start his career.

“He was on the radar when he was at St Neots,” said Holleran, who admitted he was surprised to beat off a number of higher-ranked clubs to land Felix.

“York was a bit stop-start for him but there were a lot of clubs interested. He’s still a young boy and feels Leamington is the right move for him.”
