“This is another great signing for the club and one I have been chasing for a while now,” Batten told

“Hicham always stood out and impressed me whenever I watched him play last season.

“He’s a tricky, very quick and very talented midfield player whom will grow in our team and nature of play.”

Akhazzan started his playing career with Chatham Town, before signing for Sittingbourne.
