Tonbridge Angels boss Tommy Warrilow says he is thrilled about landing Frannie Collin after believing the former Dover striker was out of his price range.

The 23-year-old ex-Gillingham forward, pictured, joins former Crabble team-mates Danny Walder and Lee Browning at Longmead, while Jake Beecroft has returned to the club from Blue Square Premier Rushden.

Warrilow said: "I thought we wouldn’t be able to afford him.

"We weren’t the best offer Frannie had, three other teams were chasing him and another came in with a last-ditch call offering him more money.

"Jake has ripped up his full-time contract with Rushden to pursue a career in the sports industry and he and Danny were both together at Gillingham.

"They could be a couple of dark horses for us next season, especially Danny who built himself a real reputation at Dover."

Midfielder Lee Minshull left the club this week to join AFC Wimbledon full-time and Warrilow added: "It’s a great move for him. I’m sure he can play higher."
