Keeper Sails From Fleet To HDP
Margate Football Club is delighted to unveil the signing of goalkeeper, Jonathan Miles.
Miles joins Hartsdown Park from National League side Ebbsfleet United having been at Stonebridge Road since 2015.
The 26-year-old will be no stranger to Gate supporters having enjoyed a loan period at the club in 2017.
Miles is looking forward to coming back to the club he remembers fondly from his previous -spell.
“It was a bit different previously, we played on grass to start and we were in a relegation dog fight at the time, but it was good and I was really welcomed by everyone. I like to think I did well in tough circumstances and I’m now looking forward to getting started again.”
Explaining how the move came about, Miles revealed,
“I heard from my agent that Margate were interested, and I knew straightaway that I was keen, especially because of the Manager and his track record at this level and above. I couldn’t wait to come down and sign really.”
A fair number of candidates wore the Margate number one shirt last season and having made the move from The Fleet, Miles is focused on making the position his own.
“I want to come in, I want to play as many games as possible and I want to help this team push as high as possible and hopefully get promoted.”
Miles added, “At this level you need young talent and a bit of experience and I think we will have a nice blend.”
