Ryman League Division One South club Whitstable Town received an early Christmas present with the news that young….
….midfielder Scott Heard had turned down the chance to join Skrill South side Ebbsfleet United following a formal seven-day approach.
A local lad, Heard began in the Ostermen`s youth side and also represented Kent at that level before making his Ryman League debut in 2009/10 against Croydon Athletic.
Ebbsfleet manager Steve Brown said: “Scott impressed me on the three occasions I have seen him play. We made a formal approach for him last week but league rules meant we couldn’t speak to him until today.
“He has subsequently signed a contract with Whitstable and the player has decided not even to speak to us which is disappointing but it happens and we wish Scott and Whitstable all the best for the rest of the season.”
