Roarie Deacon has returned to Sutton United two years after coming to national prominence in their FA Cup run.
That run finished with a fifth-round tie against Arsenal in which he hit the bar with a 25-yard shot. He had earlier in the competition scored last-minute goals to beat Forest Green and Cheltenham, and the goal at Wimbledon that turned the replay in Sutton’s favour was voted Goal of the Season.
Deacon was also voted Players’ Player of the Season and Supporters’ Club Player of the Season. The 27-year-old signed for Scottish Premiership club Dundee in summer 2017 and made 28 appearances before being released at the end of last month.
Also being welcomed to the club is 21-year-old striker Dylan Kearney, who has been among the leading scorers in the Evo-Stik Southern League this season for Harrow Borough and has signed a contract until the end of next season. He has previously played for Hayes & Yeading and Uxbridge.
