Margate Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of experienced goalkeeper James Russell on dual registration with National League South side St Albans.

The 30 year old will join up with Steve Watts’s squad tomorrow (Saturday) as they welcome Wingate & Finchley to Hartsdown Park.

The shot-stopper began his career at Chelsea and more recently featured for St Albans in their victory over Whitehawk in the Buildbase FA Trophy last weekend. Other clubs include Boreham Wood where he helped ensure their survival in the National League Premier.

Manager Steve Watt is delighted to add an experienced keeper to the squad. “It is great to be able to add James to the squad”.

“There is no questions over how well young Patrick has done covering Lenny but it is a lot of pressure on a 19 year olds shoulders and James will provide us with more cover until the return of Lenny”.

“James has played National League football and is an excellent addition for us”.
