Gills boss Steve Lovell said: “Josh is a player I have had my eye on for some time now. He’s quick, confident in possession and is always looking to get forward.

“He played a pivotal part in Bromley’s successes last season, he was one of the highest scoring midfielders in the country and we are very much looking forward to working with him.”

Rees, who's also played for the England C team, scored in the penalty shootout as Bromley lost the FA Trophy final on spot-kicks to Brackley at Wembley last month.

Speaking about his move to Priestfield, he said: "I’m really pleased.

"Once the manager showed interest I was set on coming here.

"It’s a good club with solid foundations in this league.

“I’m at a good age, I’ve worked hard to get back to where I wanted to be and this is a great club to be at.”
