Centre-half Sonny Miles has joined Maidstone United from Tonbridge Angels on a one-year contract.

Miles, 23 was offered terms by new Angels boss Steve McKimm but decided to move on - and Stones manager Jay Saunders wasted no time making contact.

Saunders said: "I've known Macca a long time and he knew I was interested in Sonny last season.

"He rung me and said he'd offered Sonny a deal and I told him I wouldn't make an approach until he'd made up his mind.

"Once Tonbridge put it out he would be leaving I moved quite quickly.

"I had a chat with Sonny and made Macca aware we'd agreed a deal.

"I know we need experience and Sonny's only 23 but he's been promoted from the Ryman Premier with Tonbridge and has a few years under his belt in Conference South.

"He's aggressive, likes to attack the ball and win his headers and tackles, plus he's not bad on the deck either.

"It was a no-brainer for us to bring him in.

"No doubt there will be rumours he's come here for more money but that's not the case."

Miles will compete with Steve Watt and new player-coach Jamie Coyle for a place in the side, with Jack Parkinson set to play more in midfield next season.

The move reunites Miles with his former Angels team-mates Lee Worgan and Frannie Collin.
