The Fleet sign Grays midfielder Charley Hearn on loan until the end of the season…
Ebbsfleet United have bolstered their squad with the signing of 24-year-old Grays Athletic midfielder Charley Hearn. Hearn, on loan until the end of the season but cup-tied for the FA Trophy, has made 15 appearances this season for Grays, scoring two goals.
Head coach Liam Daish said: “Charley is a creative
player and will bring a new dimension to the midfield. This will help
to strengthen our squad for the run in to the end of the season.”
The Ashford-born player began his career at Millwall in 2001 and graduated into the first team, making his league debut against Walsall that same year and going on to rack up 24 appearances.
He had a spell at Northampton Town on loan in 2004-05 making 28 appearances and scoring once before singing for Hendon and then Fisher Athletic in 2006 following his release by Millwall. Highly regarded in Conference South, he departed Fisher following the club’s financial troubles and signed for Grays Athletic in June 2007. He also spent four weeks at Lewes on loan in February 2008.
Hearn did not feature in either league game against the Fleet over Christmas because of a foot injury, which also curtailed his appearances at Lewes.
