Former Gillingham striker Roman Campbell will be playing for Faversham Town next season.
The Isthmian League side have already announced their biggest sponsorship deal ever and have now unveiled the addition of a promising young striker to complement their forward line.
Campbell left the Gills in January 2020 and has previously had spells at Sittingbourne, Margate and Ramsgate. He’s also played for Folkestone but says he is hoping a move to Salters Lane can reignite his passion for the game.
Speaking to the club, he said: “I can't wait to get back to enjoying my football and I believe that Faversham is the perfect place for that.
“I can bring goals and create a lot for the team by giving them a different option up the top."
Town boss James Collins already has some top talent upfront, including Harry Harding, but when Campbell became available he made his move.
“He is a player I have admired for a long time,” Collins said.
“I am more than happy with our current squad, but when a player of Roman's quality becomes available, it was a no-brainer to see if we could make it happen.
"It's something we have worked on over a few weeks and I think, after we met, we both felt it was right for both parties.
"I don't think Roman will mind me saying that he possibly has lost a little love for the game and we're hoping that we can help rekindle that spark. We spoke and I think he needs to play, get a run of games and I absolutely have no doubt he will start scoring goals on a regular basis.
"We started well last season and I think the signing of Roman makes our squad from last year a lot stronger."
