Jack packs a punch in trials triumph

Midfielder Jack Paxman has been added to the Ebbsfleet squad today following a series of impressive trials performances.

The former Maidstone favourite signed for the club having turned out in all three friendlies so far against Punjab United, Dagenham & Redbridge and Hornchurch.

A one-time Southend United scholar where he spent eight years, Paxman joined Chelmsford City aged 19 after gaining senior experience on loan at Soham Town Rangers and Histon.

Following spells with Thurrock and Witham Town, he signed for Maidstone in March 2015, helping the Stones wrap up the Ryman League title that season. The following year he was part of back-to-back promotions, scoring in the penalty shootout win in the Stonebridge Road final of 2016 – as did his new Fleet teammate Bobby-Joe Taylor.

Paxman spent almost five seasons in total with Maidstone, playing regularly in the National League for them, amassing more than 150 appearances and becoming their longest-serving player in the process by the time of his departure.

That came about in March 2019 when the 26-year-old moved on to Billericay Town and he played 26 times for the Essex side last season until the lockdown ended the campaign prematurely.

Assured, calm and confident on the ball, Paxman is regarded as one of the foremost technical players in the league and has already shown the Fleet what he can do in the friendly games thus far.
