Palmer’s a hand-in-glove fit for the Fleet

Ebbsfleet United have added another goalkeeper to the squad having completed the signing of Harry Palmer.

The 24-year-old, who played part of the friendly against Tottenham Hotspur last Saturday, joins the Garry Hill rebuilding project at the Fleet from Canvey Island.

Palmer has also played for Braintree Town, Lewes, Haringey Borough, Dorking Wanderers, Brightlingsea Regent and AFC Hornchurch but it was at Canvey last season where he excelled.

He won the manager’s and supporters’ player of the season awards last term with the Gulls, working under former Fleet player of the year Mark Bentley.

He played under Danny Cowley at Braintree, helped AFC Hornchurch to an Isthmian North title and spent much of last season training at Southend United.

He becomes the Fleet’s eighth new addition this summer.
