NANA Owusu has become the latest member of last season’s Oxford City squad to agree a new contract.

The midfielder will stay at Court Place Farm for a third campaign, having first joined from Maidenhead United two years ago.

Owusu topped City's scoring charts in 2019/20 with 11 goals and was a regular in David Oldfield's side last season.

Both Vanarama National League South campaigns ended prematurely, due to the coronavirus pandemic and disputes over funding respectively, and the 31-year-old is keen to make it third time lucky.

Owusu said: “It’s good to be back, last year it was disappointing with the way the season ended as the team were doing so well.  

“I’m looking forward to working hard and getting back to the standards where we were last year. 

“I feel like I have so much more to give going into the new season.

"If I can add goals to my game, which I’ve shown in my previous seasons with the club and contribute more assists, hopefully I’ll do really well.”

Owusu is the seventh player from City’s 2020/21 squad to sign on, following in the footsteps of Harvey Bradbury, Dan Matsuzaka, Lewis Coyle, Reece Fleet, Josh Ashby and Zac McEachran.

Meanwhile, Joe Iaciofano's arrival from Havant & Waterlooville was confirmed last week.

The National League South season was declared null and void in February, after a small majority of clubs voted to stop playing following the expiry of a £10m government grant.

City, who wanted to continue, were fourth in the table and on a nine-match unbeaten run.

Oldfield's side also reached the second round of the Emirates FA Cup, equalling the club record, and produced a best-ever Buildbase FA Trophy performance as they bowed out to Notts County in the quarter-finals.

Owusu will link up with David Oldfield’s squad for pre-season, with friendlies against Alvechurch and Brackley Town already confirmed.
