Maidstone United are delighted to announce the signing of Jonathan Edwards from FC Halifax Town.
A summer target for John Still, the 22-year-old striker joins the club on a one-year deal.
Edwards started his career with Stevenage before signing a professional contract with Peterborough United. He had loan spells with Bishop’s Stortford, Biggleswade Town, Ilkeston and St Albans before joining Dunstable Town in 2016.
From there, the Luton-born forward attracted the interest of Hull City who gave him a one-year contract following a successful trial with their under-21s. During his time at the KC Stadium he had loan spells with Accrington and Woking – making his debut for the Cards in the 4-4 draw against the Stones.
A year ago he moved across the Pennines to join Halifax Town on the eve of the new season.
Speaking at the Gallagher today, he said: “When I heard of the interest I knew it would be a great opportunity for me to kick on and get back down south to be nearer my family.
“I’ve always believed in my own abilities and attributes and having a manager like John Still is going to be good for me as you can’t ask for anyone with more experience in the game than him.
“I am happy and excited to be here, willing to learn and can’t wait to get started and scoring some goals!”
