Former Enfield Borough midfielder Percy Kiangebeni has signed a professional contract at League Two side Colchester United.

Kiangebeni will join the team’s U23 side initially having played 76 times for St Albans City since his move there at the end of the 2016/17 season.

The 21-year old was part of the original group of players when the club was first formed in 2016 and Borough chairman Marvin Walker, who was also the manager at the time, had no doubt that Kiangebeni would seal a move of this magnitude.

He said: “Everyone at the club is delighted for Percy. It was clear right from the start that he had immense potential and would not be with us for very long.

“This club was set up with the intention of giving young talent a platform on which they could display their abilities with a view to progressing to a higher standard, ideally carving out a career in the professional game.”

Meanwhile, Borough produced one of their best performances in their short history on Tuesday, January 29 as they recorded a 4-1 win over Bedfont and Feltham to reach the semi-final of the Middlesex Senior Cup.

Both teams had chances in the opening half at a snowy Maurice Rebak Stadium , particularly when Alie Bangura and Tage Kennedy spurned good opportunities, but Bangura opened the scoring three minutes before the break when he tapped into an empty net.

Bedfont had the ball in the net quickly after the re-start, but Michael Capon was flagged offside and they were made to pay soon after as Micah Jackson doubled the lead at the far post.

Two minutes later, Kennedy notched Borough’s third as he finished off Bangura’s chip, and debutant Marcus Samuels added a fourth late on to all but seal the victory.

Ashley Hitchinson did drive in a consolation for Bedfont, but there was nothing they could do about the result and Borough advanced to the semi-finals.

After the postponement of their Saturday game against Risborough Rangers, Borough will next face Potton United tonight at 7.45pm before travelling to Langford on Saturday, February 9.
