Rams pick Cotton

Nico Cotton arrives at Ramsgate

Ramsgate have just announced the arrival of midfielder Nico Cotton, who moves along the coast from Whitstable Town.

Manager Matt Longhurst stated:

“I’ve worked with Nico previously and I’m glad we have managed to bring him in he’s a versatile player with experience of this level but with a great pedigree in the game and off the pitch he fits the group dynamic.“

Cotton has made seven appearances for the Oysterboys this season, the last of them coming in the draw with VCD Athletic on September 14th. Prior to his arrival in Kent he was with Haywards Heath Town, where he made six appearances-with two goals- during the minuscule 2020-21 campaign, and thirty two- also with two goals- during the longer but still far too short 2019-20 campaign.

He moved to Heath after playing for Lewes, joining the Rooks after departing Southend United in November 2018. He had already had two Isthmian loan spells at Lowestoft Town, and spent time at East Grinstead Town, which is where he played for his new boss.

The Rams travel to Corinthian today.
