Margate manager Steve Watt has added to his squad ahead of the FA Trophy match at Staines tomorrow.
Midfielder Kane Haysman has joined from fellow Bostik Premier side Kingstonian and goes straight into the squad for the first qualifying round tie.
Haysman, 22, started the season with National League South side Chelmsford City but signed dual registration terms with Kingstonian in September and scored on his debut in their FA Cup win over Shoreham.
London-born Haysman started his career at Gillingham and enjoyed two spells on loan with Sutton. He has also played for Eastbourne Borough and Saturday's opponents Staines for whom he scored twice in 15 matches.
Blues manager Watt said: “Kane is a very good footballer who will add some quality to our side.
"He has impressed at Kingstonian and I am pleased we have been able to get this over the line before tomorrow's tough game against Staines."
Watt also tweeted: " Delighted to bring @KaneHaysman to the football club. 7 goals in 13 app from midfield, he’ll bring us great quality and an added goal threat."Haysman's arrival follows the departure 24 hours earlier of Gate midfielder Orlando Smith.Smith, 29, moved to Hartsdown in the summer after spells with Maidstone and Met Police, and scored twice in 17 appearances for the Blues.
Manager Watt said it had been a pleasure working with his former Maidstone team-mate.He added: "Orlando’s efforts have been first class. He worked hard for his opportunities and impressed me with his work rate but unfortunately he leaves us with our best wishes."Trophy opponents Staines are sixth in Bostik Premier and have recorded five wins and a draw from their seven home matches this season.Margate are 14th but three of their four league wins have come on the road.
