Ryman League Division One South club Faversham Town have pulled off a coup by signing Danny Hockton and the….

…..much-travelled striker goes straight into the Lilywhites squad for Saturday’s game against struggling Burgess Hill Town.

Hockton completed the move from Aveley – his fourth switch this season – on Wednesday, to the delight of Town manager Ray Turner.

Having scored goals for Dover Athletic, Margate, Maidstone United and Billericay Town, the 32-year-old brings quality and experience to the Faversham forward line.

Turner said: “I’m thrilled that Danny has come in. It’s one of the biggest signings we’ve made at Faversham, someone of that pedigree.

“I’ve been on his trail since last season. We met some time ago and I stayed in touch. He’s got a massive reputation in non-league and I want to push this squad on. He’s been at some massive clubs in non-League and he brings a wealth of experience.”

This season Hockton has had brief stays at Bromley, Thurrock and Aveley.
