Maidstone manager Harry Wheeler says new signing Elliott Romain is the hardest-working striker in the National League, report Kent Online.

Wheeler got his man after the Stones made several calls to Dagenham for their star forward. Daggers boss Peter Taylor eventually allowed the move to happen and Romain scored two minutes into his debut as Maidstone beat Leyton Orient in the FA Cup last weekend.

Wheeler said: “Elliott’s a pest. He runs around and pressures and made his own goal. That’s what Elliott does.

“There’s no point recruiting if you’re trying to install a certain attitude and demand and then recruit players who don’t do that.

“So we had to be careful in what we did and we brought the right one in. If I want something I don’t stop. I’m relentless.

“You can’t win them all but you’ll win as many as you can and in the end we won that one. Elliott’s right up there. He has the best work rate in the league but we’ve got the two that work the best.”
