Maidstone United have signed winger Rory Hill following his release by Tonbridge.
Hill (pictured) will be pushing for a start at Folkestone on Saturday after making his debut as a second-half substitute in United’s 3-1 midweek win at Corinthian-Casuals.
Blue Square Bet South Angels released Hill to save money and United moved quickly to sign him.
Stones boss Jay Saunders said: "Right-midfield is a position I’d been keeping an eye on since Warren Whitely left and Rory stood out when we played Tonbridge in pre-season and the Kent Senior Cup.
"Tim and Ade Olorunda used to play with him and when Tonbridge let him go, he got in touch with them.
"He’s quick and direct and likes to get at full-backs.
"We gave him 20 minutes on Tuesday and he put in two great balls that we could have scored from."
Striker Stuart King (knee) is a doubt to face his former club, while midfielder Ben Greenhalgh remains on trial at Inverness.
The decision to release popular midfielder Ben Davisson at the end of last week sparked big debate on the fans’ forum.
Saunders rates Davisson but is confident he made the right decision.
He said: "At this level, you need more of a physical presence in midfield, especially away from home. He’d been out injured for a long time and I couldn’t see him getting back in."
