Herne Bay sign SE Dons and ex-Hythe Town striker Zak Ansah

ByCameron Hogwood

Herne Bay have bolstered their squad with the signing of striker Zak Ansah.

The 25-year-old parted ways with Hythe Town in May due to the club's reluctance to let him continue playing Sunday League football for SE Dons.

Ansah scored over 50 goals across all competitions in under two seasons at the club before departing at the end of the campaign.

Ansah started out his career with Arsenal and spent 10 years with the club before joining Charlton Athletic in 2014 without having made a first-team appearance.

His two-year spell at Charlton would include loan stints at Plymouth Argyle and Newport County in the Football League until he finally signed for National League outfit Woking in 2016.

Having struggled with a long-term knee injury, he was released in June 2017 and subsequently joined Hythe where he later broke a club record by scoring in 10 consecutive games in 2017/18.

Ansah was one of four players released by Hythe in May including George Kamurasi, defender Salvyn Kisitu and winger Ryan Palmer.

He will be accompanied at Winch's Field by SE Dons teammate Kieron Campbell, who signed for Bay last month.

Discussing Ansah upon his exit, Hythe manager Sam Denly said: "His goalscoring record for us has been outstanding.

"Players like Zak are few and far between."
