Foundation member Aeron Singh signs on for another season having already had 56 appearances in Franklin United colours and the Weymouth resident is looking forward to adding to that in 2020.

He has won the National Secondary Schools title a couple of times, whilst also representing Fiji at age-group level. In 2005, Singh moved to New Zealand and played for Mangere United. He was able to help the team to a Chatham Cup Semi-Final appearance. Aaron then had the opportunity to join Central United where he had success winning the NRFL Premier League title. A brief spell at Papatoetoe AFC followed before a move to Franklin United in 2016.

Coach Mark Holt said, “Aeron has been a player I have admired for a number of years. He has always been a solid performer in the heart of defence when I have seen him in action. A big, strong ball-winner on the ground and in the air, he reads the game well, is adaptable; calm under pressure, and does everything asked of him, whilst making it look easy. He leads by example and is one of those guys you want in and around the squad we have assembled. With Darren Woolnough retiring at the end of last year and having a young talented backline this season, his experience will be vital on and off the park”.

On signing, Aeron declared, “Since joining the team, I have had a good experience on and off the field. I really like the environment at the club and that is why I decided to stay at Franklin for another season. With a young squad around this year, it gives me the opportunity to share my experience and also it provides myself with new challenges. I hope to have a great season representing the area with the support of the Franklin Family that I have loved being a part of since day one.”
