Tonbridge Angels boss Steve McKimm has strengthened his defence and added some firepower to his attack with his two latest signings.

Centre-half Jerrome Sobers has arrived from Maidstone United while another former Stones player, forward Tommy Whitnell, joins from Dulwich Hamlet.

That mean’s McKimm has brought eight new faces to Longmead since he took over from Tommy Warrilow.

Sobers, who spent two years at Ipswich before being released at the end of the 2004/05 season, made 37 appearances for Stones last season.

He will be hoping Angels’ fans forgive him after he scored the winner in the 1-0 win against their side in a pre-season friendly last July.

McKimm said the pair didn’t mark the end of his dealings in the transfer market.

He said: “I am almost there – I’ve made another couple of offers and I’m just waiting to hear back.”

While there are plenty of players arriving, McKimm also confirmed that Chris Piper, Mark Lovell and Luis Cumbers have left the club.
