Maidstone United have signed defender Manny Parry from Grays Athletic.
The 21-year-old began his career with Millwall and Stoke City before moving to the non-league game with loans at Conference clubs Maidenhead United, Nuneaton Town, Weston-super-Mare and Worcester City.
He had been on the club’s watch list for several months – interest that was confirmed when the two clubs met in March and April.
Stones boss Jay Saunders said: “Manny’s a young lad with lots of potential. He’s not the finished article but has the pace and presence to go far in the game – he was definitely a handful for our front three when we played Grays a few weeks ago.”
