Dover have completed the signing of Bromley captain Rob Gillman.

Hayes managed Gillman when he was a youngster at Bishop’s Stortford and quickly made him a top target after becoming Whites boss.

Hayes told the Dover website: “The lad is ambitious and I know he wants to play at a higher level of football.

"He had a chance to play in the Blue Square Premier for Grays – but the deal wasn’t quite right for him to give up his job.

“Bromley obviously didn’t want to lose him. No-one wants to lose their captain. And he’s coming here to improve as a player and because he sees the ambition we have to go for promotion.

“He played for me at Stortford so I know all about him – and he ticks so many boxes for us. We needed a centre-half, he is a good player, has a good attitude – and he is a Kent boy too, so he will be a good fit for Dover.”
