REECE Fleet will be back at Oxford City next season after signing a new contract.

The long-serving captain has become an ever-present at Court Place Farm, making more than 300 appearances across two spells.

Fleet brought up his triple century last season, when he missed just one Vanarama League South game.

And he re-signs despite attracting interest from other clubs after he helped City reach the play-off semi-finals.

The midfielder’s three goals in 2021/22 were all winners in 1-0 triumphs, including back-to-back victories over Ebbsfleet United and Hungerford Town last autumn.

Those strikes helped Ross Jenkins’ side finish fifth in National League South, before losing 3-0 to Dorking Wanderers in the play-offs.

Fleet is set to begin his eighth successive season with City, having re-joined from Solihull Moors at the start of 2015/16.

Now 30, the former Birmingham City trainee first arrived at Court Place Farm in 2011.

He made his debut aged 19 in the Southern League Premier Division, with City finishing second and winning promotion to the National League that season.
