Wembley goalscorer Josh Stanford is one of three trialists joining Maidstone at pre-season training.

Wideman Stanford, who scored for Tunbridge Wells in the FA Vase final against Spennymoor Town two seasons ago, will link up with Stones at their opening session on Tuesday.

Whitstable full-back Aaron Simpson and Herne Bay striker Jordan Casey are also out to impress.

Stones boss Jay Saunders said: “These are three lads I want to have a look at and I’m interested to see how they do. If they’re not what we’re looking for, I’ll tell them early so they can get themselves sorted out elsewhere.

“Josh trained with us before. We helped him get his move to Tunbridge Wells and he’s just back from playing in Australia.

“Jordan’s a centre-forward with a good background having been at Stoke as a kid a couple of years back.

“We’ve also got Aaron coming along. He’s not the finished article but he’s a good size and a talented player.”

Maidstone will start with a light training session as they build up to the first pre-season friendly at home to Dagenham on Tuesday, July 8.
