Leverock signs for Ilkeston

Danté Leverock, the Bermuda defender, has signed for English non-League side Ilkeston until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old is keen to carve out a career in England and is well known to Ilkeston as he had a training stint at the Derbyshire club a few years ago.

Leverock, who turned down a new deal at Harrisburg City Islanders — where he spent two seasons in the United Soccer League — has an ambition of winning a professional contract at a Football League club.

Leverock, who made 22 appearances for Harrisburg last season, joins several Bermudians at Ilkeston including first-team players Dale Eve, Tevaughn Tyrell and David Jones Jr.

Eve, the Bermuda goalkeeper, was named man of the match in his debut for Ilkeston in a 2-1 defeat by Barwell last weekend.

A link between Ilkeston and the island was forged in 2013 by Paul Scope, who owned the Bermuda Hogges and previously served as the Bermuda assistant coach.
