Brightlingsea Regent have confirmed that winger Kane Gilbert has signed on for the forthcoming campaign. He signed on for the first time last summer, and managed eleven appearances before the campaign came to an end.
Kane joined the club from Canvey Island, where he made thirty eight appearances during 2019-20, scoring eight times and setting up many more. He moved to the Gulls from Halstead Town just before the end of 2018, playing twenty times during that first half season without finding the net. At fifteen he had a trial with Barcelona, after his mum sent the Catalan giants a video of him playing for the Cambridge United youth team and they invited him over.
