Nabil Shariff returns to Banbury United

By . Webmaster

The club are delighted to inform supporters that 27-year-old experienced striker Nabil Shariff has agreed to return to the Puritans.

Nabil began his career at Rushden & Diamonds and was a scholar there when he joined Banbury United on work experience in November 2009. He stayed with Banbury for the rest of that season, making 31 appearances and scoring three goals. He impressed enough to be awarded a professional contract by the Diamonds in the summer of 2010. He then re-joined Banbury early in season 2010/11 on loan from Rushden and made 21 appearances, scoring eight goals before his loan spell ended in mid-November. He was then loaned out by Rushden to Conference North side Nuneaton Town. On his return to Nene Park, Nabil would make his Conference debut for Rushden in February of 2011, going on to make a total of 11 Conference appearances for them through to the end of that season.

Upon the demise of Rushden in the summer of 2011, Nabil moved to Conference National side Tamworth and made 24 appearances for them in season 2011/12 before joining Hemel Hempstead Town on loan for the final two months of the season.

A permanent move to Oxford City followed in the summer of 2012 but he was released by them at the end of November whereupon he immediately signed for Kettering Town though he only made one appearance for them before opting in December 2012 to return for his third spell at the Spencer Stadium in which he made 22 appearances scoring four goals through to the end of that season to bring his Puritans career total to 74 appearances and 15 goals.

Nabil moved on to Corby Town in the summer of 2013 and has since played for Stamford, Belper Town, Daventry Town, AFC Rushden & Diamonds, Alfreton Town, St Neots Town and Stratford Town. He was part of the Stratford Town side that reached the Southern League Premier Division Central play-offs last season.

Manager Mike Ford commented “I’ve worked with Nabs before and admired the way he worked for the team. If you add that to his ability to score goals, we have secured a very good signing. I look forward to working with him over the course of next season.”

Nabil on his return to Banbury said “I’m happy to be back at Banbury and am looking forward to a successful season.”

Everyone at Banbury United would like to welcome Nabil back to the club.
