Lee Valley Lions have announced the re-signing of forward Joseph Berry ahead of the 2019/20 National League South Two season.

The 31-year-old returns for his second consecutive season at the east London outfit after an impressive campaign.

The former Haringey forward had an all-time high season for both assists and points - despite the Lions finishing bottom of the league table.

Berry made 25 appearances for the club, finding the net nine times and adding 16 assists for a total of 25 points.

The assistant captain has played 11 seasons in total for the Lions over three separate spells with the club, first from 2005 to 2009, and then from 2010 to 2016 as well as last season.
