Cannon Beckwith

National League stopper signs for Hythe Town

Hythe Town have announced the signing of centre back Dean Beckwith, last seen turning out for Havant & Waterlooville.

Dean was part of the Hereford United side which climbed from the National League to League One, but some Isthmian supporters with long memories might recall that in the years prior to that period of his career he spent a brief time with Tonbridge Angels and Margate.

He came through the youth setup at Gillingham, and after leaving the Bulls in 2009 played for Northampton Town, before moving on to Luton Town and then Eastleigh. Hw went on to play more than one hundred times for Sutton United, as part of the side that won National League South, before spending last season with Havant.

He signing should be seen as something of a coup, and you can read more about it here.
