Barking continue to prepare for the upcoming 2021/22 Isthmian North season with three new additions and more pre-season friendlies. 

The Blues have moved to bring in Olumide Oluwatimilehin, Peter Ojemen and Flavio Jumo to bolster their squad. 

Midfielder Oluwatimilehin spent 2019-20 with Wingate & Finchley, making 33 appearances before the season was cut short due to the ongoing Covid pandemic.

He has a great deal of Isthmian League experience, as he also played in the Premier Division for Hornchurch, Lewes and Kingstonian, and at step four for Three Bridges and Whyteleafe. 

He played at an even higher level last season as he turned out for Braintree Town in National League South until once again the season was cut short.
