Will De Havilland is enjoying the chance to work with new Maidstone assistant boss Steve Watt.
Summer signing De Havilland is very much in Watt’s mould as a big, no-nonsense centre-half, so they were always likely to hit it off.
He said: “It’s been really good having him here. I know he’s very experienced having played for Chelsea.
“Before I came, there was a former coach I had at Millwall who said he knew him and that he would be a great help for me. And he has been so far.
“It’s just general positioning with the whole back four, more than individually.
“We’ve been working on the whole back four and our shape. It’s been good.”
De Havilland, 23, played 10 games on loan for the Stones from Wycombe last season.
