Dryden Signs From Invicta

Scott Porter has added even more firepower to his squad with the signing of Folkestone Invicta's all time top goalscorer Jimmy Dryden.


Dryden becomes the fifth striker in Porter's squad, but it is expected that both his level of experience and ability to play in midfield will give the Hythe manager even more options in Hythe Town's first ever season in the Ryman League.


The ex-Invicta man's ability to play in various attacking roles also helps balance out the squad, after it was agreed that youngsters Sam Conlon and Dan Scorer will start the season with Kent Invicta League side Ashford United.


Dryden, aged 31, scored 138 goals during his time with our neighbours, and also had a spell for Dover Athletic for whom he was top goalscorer during the 2008/9 season, scoring the goal that clinched Dover the Ryman League South Championship.


Welcome to the club Jimmy!
