Sheppey United are delighted to confirm Lekan Majoyegbe has decided to stay with the Ites for the upcoming season.

The 22 year old defender has been an important feature for Sheppey United since joining from Corinthian in 2022. So far Lekan has made 93 appearances, scoring 3 goals.

Manager Ernie Batten said, “We know how important it was to keep Lekan here. I wont kid you, he’s had a lot of interest but we’ve come to an arrangement whereby I’m sure all the supporters will be glad to see him remain here.

“He’s won club awards in his last two seasons, and you can see why. He has everything a defender needs, strength, aerial presence and pace – enjoy him whilst he’s here as he has all the ability and promise to progress further. I’m very pleased we got this done.”

Assistant Manager Darren Blackburn added, ““I gave Lekan his debut in men’s football at 16 for Holland’s and Blair reserves, it was evident then he was a great lad and had so many natural attributes and a lot of potential.

“He’s creating a good profile for himself as a person and a player and he’s a Stella signing in my opinion. Not perfect and perhaps still developing some areas of his game at this level, but once he gets those, he’s a lad you’d like to push on one day when the time and offer is right for him. Lucky for us this summer isn’t quite that time. He knows what I think of him and I and glad he staying.”

Fellow Assistant Manger Geoff Record was equally pleased, “Great news that Lek is to re-sign for the club and I look forward to helping Lek improve his football and to continue with certain aspects of his game that we had worked on last season before most games.”
