Porter Adds Lacy & Parkinson To His Summer Captures

Scott Porter has unveiled his second and third summer signings. Thirty-year old full-back Aaron Lacy has put pen to paper after agreeing terms. Lacy, started thirty-seven games for Margate FC in the Ryman Premier last season, Lacy signed for Margate in February 2010 after over six years with Maidstone United. The versatile player started his career with Gillingham and has also featured for Lordswood and Chatham Town.


Porter said: “He’s a full-back, midfielder, has got great attributes to his game, a long throw as well. He’s proven in the Ryman League and he’s a top bloke. He’s been at the Ryman Premier with Margate and he’s gone through all the leagues with Maidstone, so he’s very experienced and he’s a good lad."


“He’s a winner, a battler and he’s a talker and he’s looking forward to jumping on the bandwagon basically, and obviously going up the Ryman really, with us. I’ve been in talks with him for a couple of weeks and I’m delighted to have him onboard.”


Tom Parkinson becomes Scott's third new signing of the summer, after the centre-back agreed to join from Burgess Hill Town, where he had a loan spell from Maidstone United made permanent. He said: "We tried to get Tom last year but he stayed where he was. We’ve always had him on the list for this season. He’s got good experience at a higher level for a young lad, and he fits into the mould with the rest of the squad. We’ve strengthened in every area so far and we’re very happy to have a settled squad."


Welcome to the club Aaron and Tom!
