Daryl McMahon has concluded a deal to bring Darren McQueen to Stonebridge Road for the 2016/17 campaign on a season-long loan.
The exciting 21-year-old attacking midfielder/striker joined Ipswich Town on a one-year professional deal after departing Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2014 and played in the League Cup for the Blues.
He spent last season with Maldon & Tiptree in the Ryman League Division One North, netting 17 goals in 39 games for the Jammers and, on trial with the Fleet this summer, he has clearly impressed the club’s management staff. McQueen has also been training with the first team throughout pre-season.
Having shown pace, intelligence, maturity and great awareness in his games thus far, McQueen certainly did enough to merit a place in the Fleet squad for the forthcoming season while his three goals in pre-season did his case no harm either.
