Margate have announced the signing of Jack Paxman.
Eagle-eyed fans may have spotted the full back in a Blues shirt during The Gate’s pre-season friendly against Gillingham FC on Saturday afternoon.
Paxman’s performance impressed Margate’s management duo, who were quick to snap up the former Dover Athletic Academy, Ramsgate and Deal Town player.
Joint-manager Mike Sandmann believes the local youngster could make a huge impact at Hartsdown Park and looks forward to working with him again:
“Browny and I are delighted to add Jack to the squad. He fits the mould of player we want to develop and I’ve seen his potential since working with him at Dover; he’s hungry to learn and keen to improve his game.
“Jack’s an exciting player in attacking areas and his defensive responsibilities are in more than capable hands learning from Steve Brown.”
“I would like to thank Derick and Steve at Deal Town for making this process a smooth one and wanting to see a young player go on and progress which is really refreshing.”
