Ebbsfleet United striker Dominic Poleon has agreed to stay for another season.
The 27-year-old former Leeds United and Wimbledon front-man joined in January but was restricted to just three appearances before the season was scrapped.
Despite just a few appearances, he certainly made an impact for Fleet, scoring in two of those games, including the winner at Havant & Waterlooville with his first touch after coming off the bench.
Poleon, who had a previous loan spell with Dover, has been able to settle more at Fleet by playing in practice games over the last few weeks, scoring in some of those too.
He’s happy with where he’s at and told the club: “The manager has a clear vision of how he wants to play, with what he demands and what he expects and everyone is buying into that. I’m certainly buying into it and all the boys are reading off the same page.”
Monday’s announcement comes hot on the heels of news that 2020/21 fans’ player-of-the-year Jack Paxman is also staying on.
Paxman, 27, joined Fleet last summer after previously playing for Maidstone United.
After agreeing his new, Paxman said: “I can’t wait to be back playing in front of the fans. I was over the moon to pick up the player of the year award in a strange season but we’ve come a long way in a year and I’m lucky to have a great group around me. We’re coming back even stronger next year.”
Dorking Wanderers, meanwhile, have clinched the signing of Bobby-Joe Taylor, who had been at Fleet since August 2020, moving there from Dover Athletic.
