There’s a new addition at the Gallagher Stadium as Clovis Kamdjo agrees a deal for next season.
The Cameroonian midfielder, who can also play in defence, joins the Stones after leaving St Albans City at the end of last season.
His playing career in England started at Reading and he made his way through the youth ranks with the club. From there, he signed for Barnet – then in the Football League – in 2009 and made more than 100 appearances during a four-year spell.
Non-league experience followed at Salisbury City, Forest Green Rovers, Boreham Wood and York City.
Clovis scored on his league debut for York, which happened to be against his new club. Televised live on BT Sport, he cancelled out Bobby-Joe Taylor’s effort to earn a share of the points on the opening day of the 2016/17 National League campaign.
After two seasons at Bootham Crescent, he signed for St Albans City at the same time as our first summer signing Lewis Knight.
Speaking after sealing the deal, Clovis said:
“I am really happy to get the deal over the line and really looking forward to next season.
“I am an honest player and I’ll give everything. I’ve got experience from being in this league and the two above.
“I played here in my first season for York. It was the first day of the season and live on BT Sport.
“When Maidstone went one-nil up you could hear the noise and we were thinking that we’re not going to get out of this, the pressure just was so much. We managed to get back into the game – I scored as well – it was a good header actually!
“We have to be on it next season, we can’t take it lightly. You have to come in, be serious and with the right players and I don’t see why we can’t challenge to go back up.”
