Cray Wanderers can also confirm the signing of Dean Beckwith to the club where he will be captain for the 2021-22 season.  Dean comes to Cray from Hythe Town and is a very experienced central defender who came through the youth system with Gillingham and made a couple of first team appearances going out on loan to Dagenham & Redbridge and Margate. He went on to Hereford United in 2005 where he spent four seasons and achieved promotion to the Football League with the U’s making 153 appearances.  Dean later spent two seasons at Northampton Town from 2009 and then to Luton Town who were in the Conference at that time. After a decent spell at Eastleigh he moved onto Sutton United in 2015 spending four years at Gander Green Lane making 108 appearances and a member of the side which reached the 5th Round of the FA Cup in 2016-17.  After a short spell at Maidstone United, Dean moved on to Havant & Waterlooville for the 2019-20 season but moved on to Hythe Town in September 2020.

We welcome Dean to Cray Wanderers and hope he enjoys his time with the club.
