Enfield Town have continued their preparation for the upcoming Isthmian Premier League campaign with the addition of two new signings.

Mario Noto and Steve Wales become the latest names to join Andy Leese’s squad as the Towners boss looks to hit the ground running in his first season in charge of the club.

Midfielder Noto arrives at the Queen Elizabeth II stadium with a wealth of experience, having played for a multitude of clubs throughout his career.

The 32-year-old started his career at Tottenham Hotspur before moving to Reading where he failed to make a first team appearance.

Spells at Canvey Island, Chelmsford and Boreham Wood followed before Noto joined Harlow Town in November 2015.

Leese is clearly eager to add experience to his squad, with his second recent addition coming in the form of 34-year-old Wales.

The midfielder spent last season at Wingate and Finchley where he helped Dave Norman’s side to a play-off semi-final against Bognor Regis.

Again he arrives with a CV boasting a number of clubs, having had spells at St Albans City, Chesham United, Hemel Hempstead Town, Boreham Wood, Cambridge City and AFC Wimbledon.

Wales also has international experience to his name and represented the England C team.

The duo could be in contention to feature on Saturday when Town take on Amersham Town in the first of nine pre-season friendlies they have arranged.

The clash will see Leese, who used to manage Chesham United and also worked with Amersham boss Mani Asare, return to an area he is familiar with.

Leese is, therefore, looking forward to both the meeting with Amersham and the remainder of Enfield’s pre-season schedule.

He said: “I have many happy memories of my time at Chesham and it will be good to go back to the area for one of our warm up matches before the start of the season proper.

“It will also be good to link up with Mani again after an enjoyable period working together last year.”

Asare echoed Leese’s sentiments ahead of the match, and expects Enfield to provide his side with a stern test.

“It’s a great experience for our players to meet a team of Enfield’s quality and for me personally to join up with Andy again,” Asare said.

“We are a young team and I am well aware that Enfield are much higher up the league pyramid than us.

“But we are aiming for promotion this year, so we need to test ourselves against quality opposition.”

Enfield’s pre-season schedule is a hectic one and their is little time for rest after they face Amersham on Saturday.

An away match against Haringey Borough follows on Tuesday before Leese’s men travel to Sun Sports on Thursday and entertain Skelmersdale United next Saturday.

Town then face Cheshunt, Highgate United and Heybridge Swifts.
