Foxes boss pleased to be re-united with Paul Clayton, after he re-joined on loan from Ryman North side Romford.

Ilford manager Allan Fenn is delighted to welcome back Paul Clayton to Cricklefield, even if it’s only for a short spell.

Clayton began his career with the Foxes before moving on to Romford and is now Boro’s all-time record appearance holder.

But the 30-year-old has been short of action on the pitch for the Ryman North side and has joined Fenn’s men in a bid to return to full fitness.

And though the Foxes boss would love to have him back permanently, he’s just pleased to have him on board.

“I get on well with Romford’s manager Paul Martin and I’d like to thank him for letting us have both Luke McLeavy and Paul Clayton,” said Fenn. “Ilford is where it all started for him and it is great to have Paul back.

“He needs to get fit and though I would love to have Paul back full time I know Romford means a lot to him.

“Paul’s got plenty of experience and the team is looking very strong now.”

Ilford saw last weekend’s short trip to Clapton in the Essex Senior League called off, but hope to return to action on Saturday when they host Enfield.

“We beat them 2-1 the other week with a good performance and hopefully we can repeat that again,” added Fenn.
