Hythe Town sign former Margate, Maidstone and Gillingham striker Frannie Collin

ByMatthew Panting

Frannie Collin has wasted no time finding himself a new club after leaving Margate.

Collin has signed a deal to play for Bostik South East Hythe Town in the coming season.

The forward left Bostik Premier Margate earlier this week after two years at Hartsdown Park.

Collin struggled with a groin injury at the end of the season but returned to full fitness in the closing weeks.

He was playing at Margate under former Maidstone boss Jay Saunders - the duo having worked together at the Gallagher Stadium.

Hythe boss Sam Denly was keen to bolster his attacking options after Zak Ansah's departure from Reachfields Stadium.

Collin will get an early chance to renew acquaintances with Saunders as Hythe are due to visit Margate for a pre-season friendly on Saturday, August 3.

As well as Collin, Denly has also completed the signing of Ryan Cooper, who rejoins the club after playing for Canterbury last season.

Left-back Cooper previously played for Hythe in 2013/14 and has also featured for Leatherhead, Faversham and Folkestone.
