Ebbsfleet United sign defender Jamie Grimes from Macclesfield Town

Ebbsfleet have signed former Dover Athletic defender Jamie Grimes.

The 28-year-old centre-half spent last season in League 2 with Macclesfield and was previously with Cheltenham Town.

Grimes is the fifth player to join Ebbsfleet this summer as boss Garry Hill continues to build a new squad.

Grimes, who played for Kidderminster earlier in his career, joined Dover in 2015 and spent two seasons at Crabble.

He was part of the Whites side which reached the National League play-offs in 2015/16, losing to Forest Green in the semi-finals.

Grimes played alongside Aswad Thomas in that side and will team up with him again at Stonebridge Road this season after the ex-Sutton man agreed a deal last month.

Ebbsfleet's first pre-season friendly is away to K Sports on Saturday.
