Kieron McCann became Folkestone Invicta’s second signing of the summer after agreeing terms with manager Neil Cugley.

The wide midfielder impressed Cugs with his performance for Sevenoaks Town in the Southern Counties East League Challenge Cup Final when they beat Sheppey United – including former Folkestone striker Richard Atkins – at Tonbridge’s Longmead Stadium on May 6.

Neil said: “I really liked what I saw from him that day. He’s also played for Chatham Town in the Ryman League and I’m looking forward to seeing how well he’ll do with at the higher level.

“He lives up in Medway and can travel down with Ade (Yusuff) who we signed a few weeks ago so hopefully that will work out well.

“He’s got plenty of space and should enjoy playing on our big wide pitch at the Fullicks Stadium.

He added: “We are looking for players with experience at the higher levels, but we’ve done well with the likes of Harry Smith and Scott Heard who’ve both gone onto bigger things as well as Miles Cornwell and Sam Hasler who we signed from Division One South last season and both played their part in helping us stay in the Premier Division.”

Cugs is also hoping to sign a second midfield player that he met yesterday and is due to meet a experienced defender at the weekend.

He said: “We should have more news after the weekend. You can say that I’m fully focussed on bringing more players in while we do also expect to see more trialists involved in pre-season than we have had for quite some time.”
