Kingstonian sign South African Potterill from Bromley

Monday 09th January 2006

Former Bromley manager Stuart McIntyre, now coaching at Ryman League Division One club Kingstonian, is delighted to be working with South African defender Steve Potterill for the second time, as the exodus from Hayes Lane continues.




McIntyre signed Potterill - a long throw specialst - for Bromley in 2003 having impressed the Scot during the Ravens' pre-season campaign, and went on to make 115 appearances for the Kent club.

McIntyre told "Steve gives us quality and composure.  He played at the highest level professionally in South Africa and has played against some who are now playing in high European leagues in Germany and France as well as here in England."

Potterill spent two years as a full-time professional with AmaZulu (now known as Zulu Royals) of Durban in the Premier Soccer League.

He had trials with both Cardiff City and Doncaster Rovers after moving to England as well as turning out for Kentish Observer League side Beckenham Town before sending his CV off to Bromley requesting a trial in 2003.
