    Joe Dolan
    The club are pleased to announce the signing of defender Joe Dolan (30) from Cray Wanderers. Joe is a former Northern Ireland U21 international whilst a football league player, making around half a century of appearances for Millwall.

    Manager Alan Dowson comments, "Joe is a strong character and a good leader so will make a difference to us at the back, where we've been getting sloppy. I've tried to sign him on a number of occasions before so it's good to finally get him, especially when we're still missing Gary Mac(Donald)."
