Welcome Home Kane and Alby
Gresley Rovers are delighted to confirm the return of both Kane Lee and Alby Lansdowne to the club for the upcoming season.
Both players have been deeply connected to Rovers for some years, having risen through the club's youth and reserve teams before becoming mainstays of the first team in recent years.
Manager Carl Abbott expressed his delight at bringing the duo back into the fold. "Kane and Alby have represented this football club extensively, and are important additions for the management, the club, and our supporters at this stage of our squad recruitment," he said.

Abbott underscored the significance of re-signing these homegrown talents, noting that their permanent departure would have heralded a new era for the club that may have required a rebuild from the ground up. "These lads epitomize the heart and soul of Gresley Rovers and the local area," he stated. "They are shining examples for young local players like Dylan Hunniford, demonstrating what it takes to become a top player at this level."

Abbott said he feels optimistic about the early stages of recruitment, taking confidence in the "bounce and enthusiasm" that Lee and Lansdowne's return will hopefully bring as the club looks to recover from a challenging period last season.

He added: "Both Kane and Alby will form the backbone of the club's leadership group. Their deep roots within the Gresley Rovers community and wealth of experience making them indispensable assets both on and off the pitch".

"The news of the homecoming of both Kane and Alby hopefully signals an exciting new chapter for the club", concluded Abbott
