The club are pleased to announce that goalkeeper Henry Newcombe has joined the Hoops for the 2022/23 season. Henry ,24, enjoyed a loan spell with the club back in the 2015/16 season and has since played for Wycombe, Canvey Island, Margate, Folkestone, Chatham and most recently Hythe Town where he made over 30 appearances in Isthmian South East League last season. Henry who grew up in Deal will be joining his hometown club as we look to build on our success in the 2022/23 season.Commenting on the signing Steve King said ‘As soon as we knew Tonks wasn’t going to be able to commit this season Henry was our number one target and we are pleased to have bought him into the club. We knew Tonks would leave big gloves to fill but know that Henry will certainly be able to do that. As well as being a very good goalkeeper Henry also fits into the profile of player we like to bring into the club. He is a local lad, ambitious and has vast experience of playing at higher levels. He believes in the plans for the club moving forward and we are pleased he is going to be part of it. He already knows a lot of the lads and we look forward to seeing him in a Hoops shirt this season.’When talking to our new signing he added ‘I am delighted to have signed for my home town club. The club is a perfect fit for me and I am looking forward to the new season’.We will see Henry back in a Deal Town shirt when our pre-season campaign starts on Saturday 2nd July.
