Leamington have completed the signing of former York City winger Kaine Felix following his release last week.
The exciting 22-year-old made 24 appearances for the Minstermen before he was let go by the former Football League club, and arrives at the New Windmill Stadium to boost Paul Holleran’s attacking options.
Before his time at Bootham Crescent, Felix enjoyed spells at the likes of St Neots Town and Boston United, where his form earned him an England C call-up, and Holleran is hoping his new recruit can recapture that form for the Brakes.
Speaking to The Courier, the manager said: “At Boston, when they made the play-offs, he was electric.
“He can play in any of the top three positions, right, left or down the middle. He’s quick.”
Felix ended last season at Stockport County, and scored twice on his debut for Deeping Rangers last Saturday during a short-term spell with the United Counties League Premier Division side, but Holleran believes the attacker needs to settle.
“He was on the radar when he was at St Neots.” said the Brakes boss. “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. There’s not 30 players here and he sees it as a great opportunity.”
