Joining new manager Tony Beckingham at the Deres are a good mix of new names and familiar ones.  None more familiar than assistant manager Andy Constable, a double-winning Deres legend with 64 goals over two seasons 2011-13.

 

On the pitch, we are delighted to announce that LEE LEWIS, REECE BARRETT, NATHAN PALMER and JAMES HAWKINS will remain with us for the coming season.  They are joined by the following new signings:

 

TUNDE ADERONMU: Tunde is a proven forward at this level and will add to our talented squad, a league winner for Beckenham Town last year finishing the season with 25 goals.  Tunde has previously played for Sittingbourne, Fisher and Cray Valley.

 

LUKE CAREY: Luke was a product of the Charlton Athletic academy from u9’s before signing a professional deal. Subsequently he had spells at Margate, Ramsgate and most recently played for Sheppey United.

 

TOM CARLTON: a very talented midfielder who played youth and academy football at Chelsea, West Ham and Colchester before initially joining Herne Bay in 2017. He had further spells at Hythe Town and Whitstable Town… but is now officially a Dere.

 

RYAN HUCKLE, 22, joins on a 1 year contract.  He is a strong and combative central defender / defensive midfielder who will add size and presence to the Deres’ side. Ryan had six years at Gillingham Academy before making appearances for Faversham Town, Hastings United and Leatherhead. A fantastic addition by the management team.

GEORGE MONGER: 27 year old central midfielder who has featured just under 150 times for Faversham Town FC and was part of Dartford’s academy as a youngster before making the jump to the first team.  He has also played for Ramsgate FC and Whitstable Town.

BEN WILSON: The defender, who can fill in at left-back and centre-back is a fantastic addition with lots of experience in the Isthmian League. A great character and his second spell at the club.  Ben was previously with the Deres in 2014-15, totalling 49 starts and 5 sub appearances with 3 goals, and nobody who was there will forget his superb run to set up the winner at Holbeach that took us to the FA Vase quarter-final.
