Hayes & Yeading are hopeful Huw Johnson (pictured) and Frankie Merrifield can rekindle their AFC Wimbledon understanding at Kingfield.
Both players were chased by United manager Phil Babb in the summer and Merrifield signed up for the season.
Johnson opted to join Skrill South rivals Staines Town under Marcus Gayle but the move did not work out and he was released at the end of November.
Six months after first holding talks, Babb finally got his man in December as Johnson agreed to make the switch to Hayes & Yeading.
He is now competing alongside his old Dons pal Merrifield for the red shirt and Babb is hoping the dynamic duo give his squad much-needed experience.
“I like Huw and there’s no secret I wanted to bring him in during the summer,” said Babb. “He had a loyalty to Marcus Gayle and went there. It didn’t work out and as soon as I knew he was available on a free transfer, we made an approach.
“Huw was with us in the summer so he already knew some of the lads.
"We’ve got a good group of lads and anyone that comes in will have to fight to dislodge someone in the team.
"There’s no guarantees at this club that you’re going to start if your form dips.
“There’s no doubt Huw is a talented young man and it’s up to him how far he wants to go in his career. Frankie is another one. They played together at AFC Wimbledon and broke into the first team at the same time.
“They’ve had a taste of League Two football and they should be driven.
"If Huw can play to the best of his ability then he can be a good player for us.”
