Southern Counties East League Premier Division club Sheppey United have announced the signing of prolific striker Stuart King and another forward in Aaron Jeffrey.

King was part of the Whitstable Town side that won them promotion to the Ryman League in 2007, scoring 30 goals along the way before moving on to Herne Bay.

He has also had spells with Folkestone Invicta, Maidstone United and Faversham Town.

King netted an incredible 44 goals in just forty-seven games for Folkestone, earning his legendary status at Cheriton Road.

Manager Ernie Batten told the club`s official website: “With Richard Atkins departure, we needed to strengthen up front and we have brought in another proven striker in Stuart King, who has bags of experience from the league above. His goal tally speaks for itself, he can score bundles of goals. King’s experience will help bring on some of the younger lads in the squad as well.”

Sheppey also announced the signing of striker Aaron Jeffery from Glebe FC.

Jeffery`s previous clubs include Sevenoaks Town.

Batten said: “Another great talent joining the squad in our push to climb the table. I think we are now only just one player away from completing the squad which is unheard of at this stage of the season! He’s a top player who can’t wait to get on to the pitch for us.”

The two latest arrivals make it seven new signings to date is at The Havill Stadium this summer following Jordan Carey, Hicham Akhazzan, Tom Brunt and Luke Girt.
