Educated to a high standard as a youngster with several pro clubs to his name. Joined for his second spell with Barton after re-joining from Arlesey Town, Lee was manager Dan Kennoy's first signing.

Leon Simpson - Ocean was signed from Southern Premier league side Brackley Town by Dan Kennoy. His reign as Rovers no.9 started well with a brace against Burnham on his debut in October 2010. A gigantic striker who is as equally good with the ball at his feet as he is in the air certainly gave Rovers oppponents a cause for concern. Leon left the club in Feb 2011 after the club was approached by Rugby Town as the striker looked to move to a club closer to home.

Callum's will to win is certainly something that will rub off on other squad members and the wide man will also bring assists and goals to the dressing room. Callum left for neighbours Hitchin Town in the summer of 2010.
Joel Mason - After a brief spell at Borehamwood, Joel has signed for the
club this season via Hitchin Town and Stotfold. Another member of the
