Maidenhead United’s new signing Ayo Obileye believes he can help take the Magpies to the next level, while developing his own game in the process.

The confident 6ft 3in 23-year-old, who netted twice against the Magpies for Eastleigh last season, is keen to perform to the best of his ability at York Road and believes the team could push for a play-off spot next season.

He is set to replace Jake Goodman in central defence, who is certain to leave the club this summer.

After two unsettled seasons with the Spitfires the centre-half is keen to revive his career with Maidenhead, a club he believes is greater than the sum of its parts because of their manager and the togetherness of the squad.

“My plan is to go there and work hard,” he said.

“I’ll first look to solidify my position in pre-season, and then will try to perform to the best of my ability to try to take Maidenhead to the next level, while also taking my own game to the next level.

“Perhaps we could finish in the top seven and push for the play-offs? You never know.”
