Dover Athletic have confirmed the signing of striker Ross Lafayette, following his departure from league rivals Eastleigh.

He began his career with Beaconsfield SYCOB and went on to play for Chesham United, Barton Rovers, Aylesbury United, Wealdstone, Aylesbury FC and Burnham.

Twelve goals in twenty-four starts for Hemel Hempstead Town in 2011/12 then earned Lafayette the move to Welling United.

He went on to score 39 goals in ninety appearances for Welling, helping them to the 2012/13 Conference South (National League) title, before spells with Luton Town, Woking on loan, Eastleigh and Aldershot Town on loan followed.

Lafayette becomes the second striker signed in recent days, following Moses Emmanuel’s capture last Friday.
