Beckenham striker sails to Erith

ERITH TOWN have signed striker Steve Shippey from Go Travel Kent League rivals Beckenham Town, writes Stephen McCartney.

The highly-rated striker scored 15 goals for the first team and a further 22 goals for the reserve side at the Eden Park Avenue outfit last season.

He will make his Dockers debut on Saturday when Willie O'Sullivan takes his side to Whitstable Town.

Erith Town progressed through the preliminary round of the FA Cup for only the second time in their history, defeating Steyning Town 5-3 at the Erith Stadium last Saturday.

The Dockers fell behind as early as the second minute but four goals in quick succession in the second half put paid to the Sussex County League Division Two side's cup dreams.

Erith's goalscorers were Danny Hogarth (2), Glenn McTaggart (2) and Paul Voiler, his first competitive senior strike for the club.

Erith Town now travel to Sussex side Ringmer in the first qualifying round on Saturday 18th September.
