Lita has signed a deal at Hartsdown Park adding to The Gate’s attacking options for the campaign. The former Reading, Bristol City and Middlesbrough striker is available to play from 10th September having recently received international clearance.
Lita joins the club having recently returned from playing abroad for Thai side Sisaket in the up and coming T1 League.
