Kent football team of the year 2015/16

By KentOnline reporter

It was a memorable season for Kent teams at many levels around the county - so picking our top XI was a tough ask.

But we've come up with the pick of the players from teams across Kent.

We've gone for three players from both Dover - who reached the National League play-offs - and Maidstone, who will now face Whites next season after winning promotion.

There are also a couple of Gillingham stars in our XI while already at least three of these players will be plying their trade for a different club next season - such was their impact during the past 12 months.

In goal is Maidstone keeper Lee Worgan, the penalty shoot-out hero who kept out Danny Kedwell's spot-kick last month to send the Stones up.

Ahead of him are two familiar faces with Jamie Coyle and Tom Mills two key members of Maidstone's tight defensive unit.

Sam Magri was a consistent performer at right-back for Dover while John Egan enjoyed another excellent campaign at Gillingham, expect him to move up to the Championship in the close season.

it is no surprise to see Gills top scorer Bradley Dack in midfield, along with Nicky Deverdics - who swapped Dover for Hartlepool this week after establishing himself as one of the National League's leading midfielders. Captain Elliot Bradbrook, who scored 17 league goals, almost led Dartford to the National South play-offs and remains an inspirational player in their squad.

Up front, we've gone for three of the county's deadliest marksmen. Stefan Payne will be playing in the Championship for newly-promoted Barnsley after leaving Dover following a brilliant season in front of goal.

Matt Godden enjoyed a stunning campaign for Ebbsfleet, comfortably outscoring his more experienced team-mates on his way to 30 goals - the best haul of his career.

Making up the team is prolific Folkestone striker Ian Draycott who led his side to the Ryman League Division 1 South title by Easter. Draycott's 37 goals saw him win the league Golden Boot for the second season running.
