Midfielder, 29. Staines were delighted in July 2019 to regain the services of a player who won no fewer than four Player of the Year awards at the Club in his previous spells, including the coveted Dick Watmore First Team award in 2014 when The Swans were in the Conference South.  He began playing for Kew Association, before first joining the Club’s Academy in March 2007, helping to lift the Isthmian Youth League, Baird Cup (twice), Capital League Cup, and Middlesex Super Cup, as well as having spells on dual registration with Staines Lammas and Walton Casuals. Moving on to Molesey and then Ashford Town (Middlesex) and Chipstead in search of more regular First Team football, he was brought back to Staines by Marcus Gayle in January 2013, and enjoyed three excellent years before switching to Hayes & Yeading United. A further spell with Molesey – interrupted by some months at Egham Town – preceded his return for a third period at Wheatsheaf Park. Brother of Guyana international and former Staines player Terence Vancooten.
