Margate have signed former Premier League striker Leroy Lita.

Brighton & Hove Albion

The 33-year-old left Thai club Sisaket last September and returns to play in England for the first time since his stint at Yeovil Town in 2016. Once an England Under-21 international, the Congolese-born frontman made his name at Bristol City before a move to Reading, where he later scored seven in the Premier League in 2006/07.

Lita has represented several clubs, including Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday, and Margate boss Mike Sandmann said:

“It’s fantastic to have a player with Leroy’s experience joining the already-talented group of lads we have. It’s another attacking option that will give the team and the supporters a lift.”
