By Steve Tervet

Dartford have signed former Gillingham and Maidstone midfielder Alex Brown.

The 23-year-old finished last season at Leatherhead after turning a loan move from the Stones into a permanent deal in January.

Brown becomes Dartford's third new signing of the summer after defenders Tom Bonner and Keaton Wood.

Darts boss Tony Burman said: "I am pleased that we have signed Alex for next season.

"He is a very good young midfield player who will bring plenty of energy into that area of the field.

"He also has an eye for goal with his desire to get into the opponents box."

Brown's arrival at Princes Park follows the release of midfielder Barry Cogan in May.

He left Gills to sign for Maidstone in December 2012 and made 139 appearances for Jay Saunders' side, helping them achieve two promotions in three seasons as well as an FA Cup win against Stevenage of League 2.

A fans favourite at the Gallagher Stadium, Brown was the first player to sign a contract after Stones reached National League South and was a regular in the side before suffering a knee injury in September.
