Dartford joint-managers Jamie Coyle and Adam Flanagan said: "We are delighted that Mark has agreed terms for next season after impressing us in a number of games last year.

"Although only 23 years old, he has experience in both the National League and National League South.

"Mark is a fantastic shot-stopper, good communicator and has brilliant distribution skills.

"We both welcome Mark to the club."

Deren Ibrahim was Dartford's first-choice keeper at the start of last season but he left the club in October to take up a coaching role at Charlton.

In came Bailey Vose on loan from Colchester but when his parent club recalled him in April, the Darts turned to Louis Wells, who was subsequently released at the end of the season.

Ibrahim was on the bench for Cray Valley in the FA Vase final on Sunday.
