Dover Athletic have confirmed the signing of left-sided midfielder James Millar from local rivals Folkestone Invicta.

20-year-old Millar was previously in the Under 19s team at First Division Gillingham where he first came to the attention of Dover first team coach Mark Patterson. Millar has played over 50 matches for Invicta and boasts an impressive goal-scoring record with 12 goals in the DML Premier Division last season despite Folkestone’s relegation.

Millar has signed initially until the end of this season but could be given a longer contract if he impresses the management team. He will be in the squad for the match against Weymouth on Saturday.
