“I am delighted to get Steve to sign for Ramsgate Football Club,” Davis told www.ramsgate-fc.co.uk.

“Steve is a well-established player and is a goalscoring legend, especially while he was playing for our local rivals Whitstable Town last season.

“Nick has been very busy this week with signings and I am pleased that Richard Lawson (the owner) and I can support Nick in his endeavours of putting together a winning squad.”
