Chatham boss Kevin Watson believes new midfield signing Jamie Taylor will be a “real asset” to his squad.
Taylor joins from Southern Counties East League side Corinthian and was involved last Friday as Chats beat Erith & Belvedere 3-2 in a practice game.
Watson retained many of last season’s players and he hopes Taylor’s arrival will improve them a little more.
He said: “He’s fit, he’s strong and will be a real asset for us. He’s hungry and aspirational and the lad also has a great personality. We are fortunate to have him.”
Watson initially targeted Taylor at the end of last season but was reluctant to make the deal as his team were in the middle of a winning streak.
“I didn’t want to drop anyone at the time and I didn’t want to leave him on the bench,” Watson said.
Chatham’s game against Erith & Belvedere was played at the London Soccer
Dome. Watson’s side came from 2-0 down to win, with goals from Matt Solly, Alfie May and a last-minute strike by Watson himself.
Chatham’s next pre-season match will be on Wednesday, at Woodstock Sports (kick-off 7.45pm).
Town’s fixtures for the 2014-15 Ryman League season will be announced on
Monday. Full details will be in next week’s Medway Messenger and on www.kentonline.co.uk
