Cray are delighted to welcome experienced defender John Beales to the club. John has been without a club since the start of the season following his release from Margate FC.
John who made his debut at Tilbury on Tuesday night brings a wealth of experience to the Cray back line. He signed for Margate in 2011 and made over 100 appearances for the National League South club. He began his career at Tonbridge Angels where he came through the Youth teams and spent a couple of spells at Longmead. He played over 250 games for the Angels before an injury kept him out of football for a year and returned to the game with Dartford before joining Hastings United.
He spent one game as Caretaker Manager of Margate in the 2013-14 season. John has been training with the Wands since the start of the season following his departure from Margate. We wish John all the best and hope he enjoys his stay with Cray.
We also confirm that winger, Uche Ibemere has re-signed for Cray and has featured mostly as a substitute since the Bury Town game on 17th October, starting the game at Dereham last Saturday. Uche played five games for Cray in the 2013-14 season arriving at the club from Dartford. Uche has since played for VCD Athletic and Cray Valley,
Cray also announce that Malik Ouani and Levander Pyke have been released by the club. We wish them well in their next ventures.
