Margate boss Steve Watt signs former Dover team-mate Tom Wynter

By KentOnline reporter

Margate boss Steve Watt has continued his busy time in the transfer market with the signing of Dartford defender Tom Wynter on a two-year-deal.

Wynter's move to Hartsdown Park, comes just 24 hours after the arrival of Folkestone Invicta skipper Liam Friend, as Watt wastes no time in reshaping the Gate squad following relegation.

The 26-year-old former Gillingham left-back leaves Princes Park after two years, and links up again with former Dover team-mate Watt.

Wynter is Gate's sixth signing and his move follows Dartford's 2-1 aggregate defeat by Chelmsford City in the Vanarama National South play-off semi-finals.

Meanwhile, Invicta boss Neil Cugley says he is "bitterly disappointed" to see Friend leave the club.

The Fullicks Stadium club's website is reporting that Friend "verbally agreed to become player coach last week, but changed his mind at the weekend."
