Kingstonian have made a quadruple signing ahead of their Isthmian League Premier Division clash with Cray Wanderers this weekend. 

Jacob Bancroft and Finlay Johnson have been brought in and made their debuts last weekend against Aveley, and O'Shane Stewart and Josh Ogunseye join ahead of Saturday. 

Spencer Knight said upon taking the manager's job last week that it was his intention to add to the attacking options in his team. 

In a statement on the club website, he said: "It's no secret that we have been looking to enhance our attacking options. I am delighted to have added four exciting young talents to our squad. 

"Jacob, Finlay and Josh will bring competition for places to our forward players, and O'Shane gives us another type of midfield player, with great energy and quality. 

"The long rebuild process is evolving all the time and I hope our supporters will enjoy the pace and ability that these lads will bring to the squad." 

Bancroft, 21, is a winger who came through the ranks at Swindon Town and made his first team debut as a substitute in a League Two game against Colchester in 2019, and has since had spells with Oxford City, Stevenage, Billericay Town, and was most recently with Hartley Whitney. 

Johnson, 19, was a youth player with Stevenage and has spent time on loan at Biggleswade Town, he made his debut for the K's against Aveley as an 83rd minute substitute for Kieron Cadogan. 

Stewart, 21, is a central midfielder who was with Southend United from the age of 14 and had been on loan with Welling United before joining Canvey Island in March and left having made 10 appearances. 

Ogunseye, 24, joins after a difficult spell with Chatham Town in which he scored just twice in 22 appearances, but was prolific last season as he got 38 goals for Farnham Town.
