Barking have announced a trio of signings with Ross Elsom, Michael Mignot and Billy Willis all being added to the squad.

Midfielder Elsom, who was at West Ham United as a youngster, has had spells with Tilbury and Histon and was also with Bishop`s Stortford.

His first spell with Great Wakering Rovers came two years ago before returning this season following a short time at Ware.

Striker Mignot joins the club from another Bostik North rival Grays Athletic after joining the Blues from Essex Senior League outfit West Essex in the summer.

He proved himself to be one of the most clinical strikers in the Essex Senior League last season, as he notched 30 goals in 41 games for West Essex, helping them to secure a seventh-place finish.

That form saw the striker finish as the third highest scorer in the division, leading to him being named in the Essex Senior League’s team of the season.

But he failed to reproduce his best form at Grays, with two goals in 10 appearances, only three of which were starts.

The 21-year-old dfender Willis has joined from Canvey Island and has had spells with Tilbury, Great Wakering and Basildon United.
