Stuart West Joins From Ashford

Stuart West, who captained the successful Ashford United team last season, has joined Whitstable for the 2017-18 Southern Counties East League campaign. Stuart is primarily a defender, but can play elsewhere and has a reasonable goal scoring record. He was previously with Hollands & Blair.

Manager Scott Porter added: “Westy is a massive signing for the club. His experience within the league says it all, having captained Ashford to a league and cup double last season, and shows the importance of the signing. He can also play in a number of positions, which I like. Westy is another great addition to the Whitstable Town squad.”

There should be further player news to follow over the next few days.
