Bostik League South club Cray Wanderers confirmed the signing of forward Charlie MacDonald in time for him to make a two-goal debut in the 402 win over VCD Athletic on Wednesday night.

Macdonald is a player with a wealth of experience in the Football League and in the higher reached of the non-League game and came to Cray from league rivals Greenwich Borough.

He came through the youth teams at Millwall and Charlton Athletic and played for Charlton’s first-team, making his debut against Nottingham Forest in January 2000.

He scored one goal for Charlton in eight appearances and after some loan spells at various clubs went into the non-League game with Margate in 2002.

He went on to play for Stevenage Borough and Crawley Town whilst they were still in non-League football and later Ebbsfleet United before returning to the Football League with Southend United and then achieved great success with Brentford securing promotion from League Two in 2008/09, scoring 40 goals in 111 appearances for the Bees.

He later went to MK Dons, Leyton Orient and Oldham Athletic.

In 2014/15 he returned to the non-League game with Barnet, becoming club captain as the side won promotion from the National League.

A year later he went to Boreham Wood and then a year after that in the summer of 2016 to Greenwich Borough, helping them settle in the Bostik League for the first time and scored 18 goals in thirty-three appearances.
