Dartford have signed former Gillingham and Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Jason Brown.

The 32-year-old, who won three caps for Wales, played for Sutton United last season and was named in the 2013-14 Conference South team of the year.

He replaces Alan Julian - another former Gills player - at Dartford, Julian having left Princes Park to sign for Sutton after being named Darts player-of-the-year.

Dartford manager Tony Burman said: "I am really pleased to have Jason on board with us this season. I have spoken to him a number of times over the last six months and I am delighted that he has finally decided to sign for Dartford.

"He will work closely with (goalkeeping coach) Tony Kessell and Deren Ibrahim, and without doubt will pass on considerable knowledge through his League and international experience."

Meanwhile, summer signing Paul Lorraine has left Dartford.

The defender, who left Ebbsfleet United after four seasons in May because he couldn't commit to their new daytime training regime, was set to wear Dartford white in 2014-15.

But the Darts' reprieve from relegation, and subsequent move back up to Conference Premier, left Lorraine and several other players in a quandary. Lorraine's work and personal commitments mean he's had to say no to Premier division football, leaving him looking for another new club.

However, he's the only member of Burman's squad to walk away, meaning captain Elliot Bradbrook and his younger brother Tom Bradbrook are both staying on for the new campaign.
