Hythe Town FC are delighted to announce the signing of Josh Burchell from Folkestone Invicta.

 

In a swop deal decided between Scott and his opposite number, Neil Cugley, Michael Yianni will move in the opposite direction to join our neighbours at Cheriton Road.

 

Josh is a talented midfielder, capable of playing in a variety of positions, and is a product of the Folkestone youth set-up.

 

He has made 234 appearances for his former club, scoring 17 goals.

Hythe supporters may remember his second-half substitute appearance in the 1-1 draw at Folkestone on August Bank Holiday. 

 

As mentioned, it is another farewell to Michael Yianni, in a deal that will see two talented players given a fresh start that they will both probably benefit from.

 

Both players carry a fine reputation but are currently unable to hold down a regular place in their respective sides.

 

Thank you to Michael for his efforts in a Hythe shirt, and welcome to the club Josh.
