Alfie Speirs has been retained. James Collins stated : “Alfie is another young player who played a major part last season and I want to see more of him this season, he’s a massive part of our changing room, but proved that he is more than reliable when called upon. Alfie provides plenty of competition for our left-back slot.”
Benedict Bioletti will be signing for the 2021/22 season. The young winger/wing-back was a revelation last season, so it was just a shame the season finished when it did as who knows what Benedict would of achieved.

To make your debut aged just 16 is no mean feat, to then go on and become a regular feature in the side is incredible and goes to show how highly thought of he is.
“I think Benny can go on to achieve whatever he wants to, and I’m delighted that he has committed to us for the forthcoming season.”

Again as a person absolutely top draw, as a player, he is someone you want on your side. I’m looking forward to being a part of his development and I know he is a firm favourite with the supporters.”

Club captain, Harry Harding, is hoping to carry on from where he started in the 2020/21 season, scoring plenty of goals and rewarding the fans with guts and determination, getting Faversham Town to the play- off position. Unfortunately the season was curtailed early last season.

On Donvieve Jones being retained, Collins said: “Of course, I’m delighted Donvieve has committed to the club again for the forthcoming season.
“He is one of the only players still to remain from Danny and Phil’s reign, he has been the most consistent player during my time at the club so far.
“I wouldn’t swap him for any other right-back in our league, I think he is getting better with every match.
“For someone of such a young age, he is a big influence in the changing room and has an infectious personality.
“If he applies himself correctly, I’m sure he can go onto a much higher level, hopefully, with Faversham Town F.C.”
