The Faversham Town managers Phil Miles and Danny Chapman have announced the first names confirmed for their new look squad.
Mitch Chapman has agreed to sign from East Grinstead and Simon Overland returns for a third spell at Salters Lane.
Fans’ favourite Jamie Maxted, speedy right-sided player Donvieve Jones and midfielder Michael Freiter will also all return for another season.
Further players, expected to include a few new faces, will be unveiled next week.
Phil Miles said: “We’re having to do a rebuilding job because none of us were happy with last season.
“So while there will be some familiar faces, we also need to bring in new players to change things.
“Supporters will need to be patient because we need to make sure we bring in the right people.
“We know other teams have been out there revealing their players in public already, but we’ve been keeping our cards close to our chests while we put the squad together.
“We won’t panic and we won’t sign players just because they’re available. They have to fit in with our plans, our budget and what we want to do here.
“It will be a different sort of squad to last season. We will be younger with more legs, and we expect the team to be more competitive.
“We’ll have a squad for the Gillingham game but I expect the squad to evolve during the season as other players on our list become available.”
