Royston Town have signed Spyros Mentis from Takeley FC, manager Steve Castle’s former club.

The central midfielder made his debut in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Uxbridge and was again in the starting line-up on Tuesday against Bishop’s Stortford in the Herts Charity Cup.

Despite losing 1-0, Mentis put in a good performance at centre back before moving forward into his more comfortable position where he broke up a number of Stortford attacks.

Speaking after Tuesday’s loss, Castle said: “Spyros is a lad I have a lot of time for - I gave him his Conference South debut at St Albans City when he was 16. I’ve always had belief in him and when I made the move from step five [with Takeley] to step four [with Royston] I knew he could play at this level.”

He added: “Spyros will add a bite to the team. His enthusiasim and fitness will be infectious and hopefully he’ll be a really big plus in the engine room.”

Mentis’ next chance to show his worth is on Saturday when Royston welcome Beaconsfield SYCOB to Garden Walk, 3pm kick-off.
