Wealdstone have completed the signing of Hemel Hempstead Town midfielder Kavan Cotter.

The 20-year-old is the second signing made by new manager Dean Brennan following the departure of Bobby Wilkinson.

Cotter joined the Tudors towards the beginning of the 2018/19 season having had a brief spell with Kings Langley in August 2018, and he has also had professional experience with Luton Town after making his Hatters debut against Gillingham in the EFL Trophy in August 2016.

At youth level, Cotter has represented Arsenal and Queens Park Rangers, where he was loaned out multiple times to Hitchin Town and he also had a temporary period at Oxford City at the end of the 2017/18 season.

On the signing, manager Brennan told the Wealdstone website: “Kavan is a player from the local area who is very technically strong, has excellent stamina and fantastic fitness levels. He’s got a really positive attitude and ticks a lot of boxes for us.”

The club have also completed the signing of striker Reece Beckles-Richards from Bostik League Premier Division outfit Wingate and Finchley.

The 23-year-old joined the Blues in 2016 and made over 100 appearances for the side, who just about escaped relegation ahead of Whitehawk this season.

Beckles-Richards spent the majority of his youth career at Aldershot Town before making the move to local rivals Woking in 2013.

He has also had experience at international level, playing in a 2018 World Cup qualifier for Antigua and Barbuda against St Lucia in 2015.

Brennan told the Wealdstone website: “Reece is a quality player we have tried to sign over the past couple of years. He is at a good age, works hard, has good movement and knows where the goal is.
