Franklin Domi has become the third Enfield Borough player to sign a professional contract at a full-time club after signing a short-term deal at Queens Park Rangers.

Domi joins Romoney Crichlow-Noble, who signed with Huddersfield Town, and Percy Kiangebeni, who made the move to Colchester United, in turning professional.

The youngster played his first match for the QPR Under-23s team last Friday, starting in a 2-1 win against Hull City at Loftus Road.

Domi only made his Borough debut earlier this season on August 18 when the side visited Hatfield Town.

He scored an own goal within the first five minutes of the game, but the left-back recovered excellently and put in a solid performance that helped Enfield turn the game around to win 5-2.

His final appearance for the club came on October 2 in the reverse fixture against Hatfield, and in that time he has been on trial with the Championship side, for whom he signed a deal until the end of the 2018/19 season.

Delighted with the news, Enfield Borough chairman Marvin Walker said: “When Franklin turned up at the start of the season, he only came along to watch his pals play. I asked him if he played too and once we saw him training, it was immediately obvious that he had the potential to be a very good footballer.

“He has been at Queens Park Rangers for a few months now and the offer of a professional contract shows that they feel the same as us. He is a good lad with a sensible head on his shoulders and the kind of calmness that means he will be able to take everything in his stride.

“Everyone at Enfield Borough wishes him the best of luck with his footballing career and we will be closely monitoring his progress and development.”

Borough were in action over the weekend as they moved into the top half of the Spartan South Midlands League Division One with a 3-2 win over Park View.

Thomas Opoku gave the hosts the lead in spectacular fashion when he drove in from 30 yards, and the lead was doubled when Deniz Karakaya’s free-kick went across the box from the left and into the far corner.

Park View pulled one back in the second half as they threatened a comeback, with Steve Opoku-Domteh’s shot took a deflection into the path of the goalkeeper, but he inexplicably let it slip through his hands and into the net.

Borough restored their two-goal advantage when Jamiah Lawrence-Plentie’s cross was played against the leg of Kwame Arthur and into the net, and despite Park View making it interesting late on when Francis Williams netted, Borough held on for the points.

Enfield’s next game sees them travel to Risborough Rangers tonight, with kick-off at 7.45pm, before making the trip to Codicote this Saturday, kick-off at 3.00pm.
