Margate snap up Fleet pair

Wednesday 17th May 2006
Midfielders Steve McKimm and Lee Protheroe, who were recently released by Nationwide Conference club Gravesend & Northfleet, have both signed one-year contracts at Ryman Premier League side Margate.

Margate player-manager Robin Trott also snapped up former Margate and Erith & Belvedere winger Paul Abbott, 23, on a one-year contract from league rivals Heybridge Swifts earlier in the week.

Trott, who retained eleven of last season’s squad, now has 14 players on the books at Hartsdown Park.
