Hythe Town boss Sam Denly has made several new signings

By Steve Tervet

Sam Denly’s search for new signings at Hythe Town continues this week.

Denly handed right-back Michael Turner his Cannons debut at Carshalton on Saturday and would like to bring more of his former Herne Bay players to Reachfields.

He said: “Michael’s an exceptional defender. We lost Jerald Aboagye to Folkestone so he came in and gave us some reinforcement at right-back.

“It’s not going to be easy at this stage of the season with a few things that are going on and being mindful of budgets but I’ll bring in what I can.

“I want to bring a few in, whether that’s now or next season, that I’ve worked with previously. But it’s a strong squad at Hythe, so if I can keep the majority of those together, I don’t need to bring in too many.”

Hythe came from behind to beat Herne Bay 2-1 on Tuesday with goals from Kieron Campbell and Zak Ansah. On-loan Gillingham midfielder Darren Oldaker played the full 90 minutes and Henry Arnold, another newcomer, also started.

Cannons are back at Reachfields on Saturday for a game against Shoreham. The Sussex side look certain to be relegated straight back to the Southern Combination League, having won only two games all season.

But Denly said: “It’s a hard one in some respects because they’ve got nothing to lose now. It’s been a long season for them but we’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves.

“They can play with freedom and if we start to buy into the fact they’ve only got five points and have been getting beat almost every week, we might come unstuck.

“We’ve got to be professional, make sure we do our jobs and if the boys work as they have done over the last couple of games, I’m confident we’ll have too much for them.”
