Kinnear makes Mitten his first summer signing

Margate have made their first summer signing, signing goalkeeper Charlie Mitten from Welling United, writes Stephen McCartney.

Many supporters of the Ryman Premier League club will remember Mitten from his former days at Margate.

Since his last stint with the Thanet club, Mitten has played for Gravesend & Northfleet and Welling.

Speaking of the former Thamesmead Town and Gillingham stopper, Gate boss Chris Kinnear told the club's website: "I am delighted to have obtained Charlie's signature.

"This significant signing will send out the message that Margate are moving forward and all the problems we have had are now in the past."

Mitten has signed a two-year contract with the Hartsdown Park club.
