Dartford sign defender Josh Hill ahead of their Skrill Premier game against Braintree Town
Dartford have signed defender Josh Hill.
The centre-back, 21, played for a Dartford XI in the club's final pre-season friendly, away to VCD Athletic on August 6.
Hill had agreed to sign for Worksop Town earlier in the summer but he subsequently left the Evo-Stik League Premier Division club when he moved to London for work reasons.
He studied and played at Loughborough University, going on to play for Ilkeston Town and Coalville Town, where he made more than 50 appearances.
Darts boss Tony Burman said: "Josh is a player who impressed late on in the pre-season and is a good, young addition to the squad."
Hill's arrival at Princes Park bolsters a Dartford defence which has been depleted by injuries in the first two weeks of The Skrill Premier season.
New signings Matt Fry (hamstring) and Tyrone Sterling (ankle) have both been struggling, with Sterling yet to feature this season, although the pair could be in contention for the visit of Braintree Town on Saturday.
That game pits together last season's two highest-ranked part-time clubs, Burman's side having finished above their Essex rivals on goal-difference.
Kick-off at Princes Park is 3pm.
