Former Gillingham defender Connor Essam and Luton Town duo, midfielder Solomon Taiwo and striker Ricky Miller sign for Dover Athletic

Dover manager Chris Kinnear was a busy man on Monday’s transfer deadline day, completing a hat-trick of signings.

First to arrive at Crabble was central defender Connor Essam after his contract with Crawley Town was cancelled by mutual consent on Monday.

He played 12 times for the League 1 side after joining them from Gillingham on a free transfer in January 2013.

Essam, 22, who put pen-to-paper on a one-year deal, had a loan spell with Dover in 2011, playing seven games, and also spent time on loan with Dover’s now Vanarama Conference rivals Dartford in 2011 and 2013.

Luton Town duo, midfielder Solomon Taiwo and striker Ricky Miller, completed Kinnear’s business on the day with the pair arriving on one-month loans from the League 2 side.

Taiwo, 29, played in five league games, scoring once as Luton won the Conference Premier title last season while Miller, 25, joined Luton in June after scoring 28 goals in all competitions for Boston United last season.
