“Mo came to us last season from AFC Hornchurch on loan after a long injury lay-off.

“I believe we have a great addition to the squad in Mo.  With a fresh start and pre-season under his belt, he brings a lot of experience, leadership and quality to Whitstable Town.”

Central defender West, meanwhile, played a key role in helping Ashford United win the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division and Kent Reliance Senior Trophy last season.

“Westy is a massive signing for the club,” said Porter, who has swooped on the player, who cannot commit to the extra commitments of playing in the Isthmian League Division One South with Ashford United.

“His experience within this league says it all captaining Ashford to the League and Cup double last season shows the importance of the signing.

“He can play in a number of positions, which I like. Westy is another great addition to Whitstable Town.”

Whitstable Town finished in fifth-place in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division last season.
