Bromley have signed Chris Bush, who becomes Neil Smith’s fifth signing of the close-season.

The versatile defender can play at right-back and left-back, but is most comfortable in central defence, from where he was pivotal in Ebbsfleet United’s play-off charge last season.

The 6’3″ 26-year-old has represented numerous clubs, including Brentford, AFC Wimbledon, Gateshead, Hereford United, Welling United and Lincoln City among others, and now links up with former Ebbsfleet teammates Luke Coulson and Michael Cheek. Bush scored five times for the Fleet last season, some of which were stunning free kicks.

He said: “I’m excited! When I spoke to the gaffer, he explained the direction the club wants to go in and the ambition it has, and I wanted to be a part of that.

“When I spoke to Luke Coulson, he was very positive about the club and I’m pleased to be here now.”

Manager Neil Smith added: “I’m delighted to get Chris on board. He’s a versatile player, which is good for us, though I’ve signed him as a central defender.

“He comes with experience, but at the age of 26 he is still developing as a player. He’ll give us the balance of a left-sided centre-half and also offers goals, hopefully with some more spectacular free-kicks!”
