Margate have confirmed the signing of Jack Sammoutis and Daniel Newman with striker Zac Attwood leaving to join…..
….Ryman League Premier Division rivals Maidstone United.
Sammoutis, who had already featured for the Gate this season in the WW Martin Thanet Challenge Cup first leg at Hartsdown Park, was the stand out player in the Metropolitan Police side that lost to Margate last Saturday at Imber Court.
He had previously played for Millwall and has been capped by Cyprus at under-19 level.
Newman also appeared briefly in pre-season coming on as a second half substitute in the 4-0 home defeat to Eastbourne Borough and was also a youngster at Millwall playing in the under-18’s
Leaving the club is striker Attwood who has signed for Kent rivals Maidstone having scored three goals in five starts for the club.
A spokesman for the club said: “The Directors of Margate Football Club are very disappointed that nobody from Maidstone United had the courtesy to speak with any member of our Board or the management team before serving notice on our player Zac Attwood.
“Zac made an immediate decision when approached by Maidstone as he was not on contract with us at the time.”
