Three more players who represented Ebbsfleet last season have agreed deals to stay at Stonebridge Road.

Defenders Aiden Palmer and Chris Sessegnon have signed new contracts while Alex Osborn, who was on loan from Dagenham, has now joined permanently after being released by the League 2 outfit.

Palmer, 27, joined from Chelmsford a year ago and was an ever-present for the Fleet at left-back while Sessegnon, 20, made the switch from Dover last season.

Osborn, who scored five goals in 40 appearances, said: "The ambition and direction the club is going in is exactly what I was looking for.

“I had a few other offers but having been on loan here last year and knowing the players and staff, it’s perfect. Working with Browny and Gritty again is something I’m looking forward to this season as I’ll have more time to improve my game and attributes and I know they will help me along the way.”

The signings bring the total number of players in Brown's squad for the new campaign to 10.
