Twenty-year-old Henry Landers (pictured) joined Banbury for the start of season 2020/21 from North Leigh and made 10 starts and 3 substitute appearances for the club prior to the season being cancelled, scoring 3 goals.

 

A former Oxford United youth, his eye for goal and attack-minded presence saw him score 17 goals in a struggling North Leigh side in 2018/19.

 

A May 2019 signing for Vanarama National League side Maidenhead United, he re-joined North Leigh in late October 2019.

 

Manager Andy Whing told https://www.banburyunitedfc.co.uk: “We’re absolutely delighted that Henry has signed on for next season, he showed great promise last year and scored some vital goals for us. We’re looking forward to Henry improving and help pushing us on next season.”

 

Goalkeeper Jack Harding has also renewed his contract for the 2021/22 campaign.

 

The 28-year-old originally came through the Banbury youth and reserve sides, making his first-team debut as a 16-year-old back in April 2009 in a Buckingham Charity Cup semi-final home first leg game against Bicester Town, keeping a clean sheet in a 2-0 win.

 

He made another 4 first-team appearances for the Puritans over the next few seasons, all in cup games, before leaving the club in search of regular first team football.

 

After a spell with Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One side Hook Norton he joined Premier Division side Ardley United for the start of season 2013/14 where over the course of the next two seasons he established himself as one of the top keepers in the Hellenic League.

 

He returned to Banbury for the start of season 2015/16, playing a key role in that season’s Division One South & West promotion winning side, missing just one league game and keeping 20 clean sheets in his 41 league appearances.

 

He was then an ever-present in league games for United the following season in their first season back at Premier Division level and to date has made 244 appearances for the club.

 

Manager Whing added “Jack is a fantastic keeper and we’re delighted he’s signed on for another year. He’s been a great servant to the club and there’s still a lot more to come from him”.
