Dover Athletic have added utility man Mitch Brundle on a two-year deal and Kane Richards on a one-year contract.  

Twenty-two-year-old Londoner Brundle, who can play in midfield and at full-back, made 34 National League appearances for DoverAthleticLogoGateshead last season, including both games against Whites, scoring twice.

Brundle joined Gateshead from Braintree Town last summer after making 77 appearances for the Essex club.

He was a member of Braintree side that finished third in the National League before losing to Grimsby in the play-off semi-finals in the 2015/16 season.

Brundle started his career in the youth ranks at Yeovil Town before joining Bristol City.

While at City, he made seven League appearances while out on loan at Cheltenham Town in the 2013/14 season.

Dover assistant-manager Jake Leberl said: “Mitch is someone with plenty of versatility who can play in a number of positions, so we are delighted to get him.

“He has plenty of experience at this level for someone so young as himself but he also has the potential to develop even further.”

Chris Kinnear’s summer rebuild continued with the signing of former Chester FC striker Kane Richards.

The 22-year-old, who can also play on the wing, came through the ranks at his home-town club Derby County and signed a one-year professional deal before he was released in January 2013.

He then joined Ilkeston before signing for Chester in December 2014.

In that time, Richards made 69 appearances for the Blues, including 39 in the National League last season.

He scored 8 times during his final season with Chester, three of those came in consecutive games.
