Ebbsfleet United manager Daryl McMahon has added to his defensive options on the eve of the club’s pre-season training camp in Portugal with the capture of Sam Magri from Dover Athletic.
The highly rated 23-year-old, who played for England from U16 to U19 level and is a current Maltese international, is a versatile defender who can play at right-back or in the centre.
Having come through the youth ranks at Portsmouth, he had a trial at Liverpool before signing for QPR, then playing on loan for Nuneaton and spending 2014/15 in Crystal Palace’s reserves.
He joined Dover in the summer of 2015 and spent the last two seasons as a regular in the Whites defence, helping them challenge for the National League play-offs in successive seasons.
Fleet boss McMahon can now head to Portugal and plan pre-season with his squad largely in place ahead of the big kick-off on August 5th.
