Jason Prior has left Dartford to sign for Margate.

The former AFC Wimbledon centre-forward has been plagued with injuries in recent seasons and he started just seven games for the Darts last term.

Prior suffered a serious leg injury in Dartford's 2-0 home defeat to Barnet on November 26 and it proved to be his last appearance for the club.

He ended the season on loan with FA Trophy finalists Gosport Borough.

Prior's prolific goalscoring form for Bognor Regis Town earned him a trial at Newcastle United in 2012 and he subsequently signed a professional deal with Wimbledon. But injuries limited his chances to shine in the Football League and after joining Dartford on loan at the end of the 2012/13 season, he made the move permanent last summer.

His arrival at Hartsdown Park further strengthens a Gate squad which is bound to challenge for the Ryman League Premier Division championship next season.

Margate have also signed 24-year-old midfielder Luke Williams from Hayes & Yeading, while goalkeeper Nikki Bull has signed a new one-year contract with the club.

Chairman Bob Laslett said: "I am delighted with these signings. We will benefit from these significant deals which will only enhance the club's ambition to win promotion this season."
