Player Stats

Bio

An attacking right back, Lanre signed for Crawley in the summer of 2014 after turning down a new deal at York City. 'Banj' spent three years with the Minstermen and was a regular side that earned a place in the League Two play-offs last season.

 

His consistent form earned him selection in the League Two Team of the Season and he also bagged the winning City goal in the FA Trophy Final in 2013.

 

Originally part of the West Ham academy, the right back wasn't offered a deal and dropped into non-league football, joining Waltham Forest before getting the opportunity to move into the Football League with Brentford in the summer of 2007.

 

He didn't make an appearance for the Bees and subsequently made a return to non-league by joining Histon. During his time with the Stutes, Lanre played in the same team as current Reds’ skipper Josh Simpson.

 

His form there led to call-ups for the Republic of Ireland under-19s and under-21 and after leaving Histon in 2011 Lanre, who can play at right back or in central defence, penned a two-year-deal with York City.
