Attacking midfielder Reco Fyfe has re-joined Pitching In Southern League Premier Division Central club Ilkeston Town from Northern Premier League Division One East side Long Eaton United.

The 25-year-old joined Long Eaton from Ilkeston’s league rivals Basford United in December 2021 and went on to make 19 appearances for the Blues, contributing with 6 goals.

Fyfe etched his name into Long Eaton’s history books with a brace in the final match of the season against Gresley Rovers at a packed Grange Park, to seal the United Counties League Premier Division North title.

The talented midfielder had been with Basford since September 2021 after arriving from NPL Premier Division side Gainsborough Trinity, where he had been since May 2020 after joining from Ilkeston.

He impressed Robins’ fans with some quality displays, which included winning the Midland League title in 2019 securing the title with a hat-trick on the final day.

He was a hot prospect coming through the academy at Notts County, although was released in 2015. Since then, he has played at other non-League clubs such as Heanor Town and Radford before making his first move to Ilkeston.
