Dover Athletic winger Marshall Wratten joins Whitstable Town for the rest of the season

Dover youngster Marshall Wratten has gone back on loan to Whitstable Town.

The 19-year-old enjoyed a successful spell with the Isthmian South East club earlier this season before being recalled by Whites boss Andy Hessenthaler.

He has now re-joined Town – 12th in the table – until the end of the season.

Wratten is a product of Dover's academy and was second top goal scorer in his last year as well as having the most assists.

He was rewarded for his progress by signing his first professional deal at the club in June.

Wratten is yet to make a first team appearance for Andy Hessenthler's Whites this season but has regularly travelled with the match-day squad and occasionally appeared on the bench.

The teenager, who spent time at Margate and Hollands & Blair last season, featured for the first-team as a substitute in the FA Cup first round tie with Bury last November.

Discussing the winger earlier this summer, Hessenthaler said: "We've played him in a few friendly games we've had behind closed doors at the ground and he stood out, he's got a bright future.

"He's one that has come through and one we believe can go on and gain a regular first team place in the next year or so."

In breaking the news on their website Whitstable said: "Marshall will be a great addition to our squad and we look forward to working with him and his quality will help us climb the league table."
