Dickson re-signs for Deres


Erith & Belvedere assistant manager, Wayne Baldacchino is delighted to announce their striker Chris Dickson has re-signed for the Park View Road club, writes Stephen McCartney.

Youngster Dickson netted 19 goals for the club last season and attracted much attention during the close season, but Baldacchino is delighted the striker has pledged his future to the Kentish Observer League club.

He told the club's website www.erithandbelvederefc.co.uk: "Supporters will be pleased to hear that Chris Dickson has signed for the Deres after long discussions and will be wearing the blue and white on 13th August.

"It took a while to sort out but Chris finally put pen to paper at the club after training on Tuesday night.

"We also hope to announce at least three more signings by the weekend and are well on course of having an excellent squad in place for our Kent League challenge this season."

The Deres' next friendly is on Tuesday, 26th July when Ryman League Division One side Cray Wanderers visit Park View Road.

So on Saturday it looks as though the first team will have a "behind closed doors" trial match to give everyone a minimum of one hours action.

There are at least 30 players training with the club at the moment and this will be an ideal opportunity to take a close look at certain players.
