Dover sign midfielder Kurtis Cumberbatch from Farnborough

Dover have bolstered their ranks further with the signing of midfielder Kurtis Cumberbatch.

The 23-year-old has joined the club after scoring 11 goals for Southern Premier Division South side Farnborough FC last season.

He marks Whites' third signing of the day following the capture of defender Will De Havilland from Maidstone and midfielder Oscar Gobern from Eastleigh.

Cumberbatch's résumé to date includes spells at Tottenham Hotspur, Watford and Charlton Athletic at youth level.

He eventually made a switch to Spartan South Midlands Football League club Hadley Town in 2015 before signing for Welling United three months later, with his one senior outing coming in a National League clash with Guiseley in October that year.

This was followed up by a move to Bostik Premier club Harrow Borough in December 2016 where he registered 14 goals, until he joined Farnborough in July 2018.

Dover have now made six signings so far this summer, with De Havilland, Gobern and now Cumberbatch following goalkeeper Yusuf Mersin and midfielders Jack Munns and Michael Woods through the door at Crabble.
