Fleet have added a second signing to the ranks this week with the capture of former Bromley goalkeeper David Gregory, who joins on loan to the end of the season from Boreham Wood.
The 25-year-old was a key member of the Bromley side that reached Wembley in the 2018 FA Trophy Final, saving a penalty at the National Stadium, and he helped Neil Smith’s team finish in the top half of the National League two seasons running.
An ex-Crystal Palace academy player, the 6ft 1in goalkeeper gained senior experience on loan at Harrow Borough, Sutton United, Bishop’s Stortford and Eastbourne Borough. He signed for Cambridge United in League Two following his release by Palace in 2016, making his League debut that year, but it was at Hayes Lane where he enjoyed a virtually unbroken spell in the National League.
In two seasons with Bromley, the popular Gregory missed only one game and made a total of 110 appearances for the Ravens, playing against the Fleet on numerous occasions. He moved on to Boreham Wood in the summer, starting the season as their No.1 before ironically losing his place when Nathan Ashmore was loaned in the other direction.
Having not played in the FA Trophy for Wood this season, the new goalkeeper – who lives in Kent – is eligible for selection for Saturday’s tie v King’s Lynn Town.
Gregory will wear the No.23 shirt.
