Experienced goalkeeper Steve Arnold will be a member of Matt Gray's squad next season.
The 33-year-old has been with Southend United for the last two seasons and will officially join us on July 1st after his contract at Southend expires. A former youth player at Boreham Wood and Arsenal before joining the Norwich City academy, he went on to play for Grays, Eastleigh, Wycombe, Stevenage, Forest Green, Dover, Barrow, Shrewsbury and Northampton, where he featured in the 4-0 League Two promotion play-off success against Exeter played behind closed doors at Wembley in 2020. A year later he joined Southend and was voted their Player of the Year for the 2021-22 season. He has one England C cap to his name.
Manager Matt Gray said: ''Steve's someone we know well, as I worked with him early in my career as an assistant manager at Eastleigh, and Jason has worked with him at Stevenage, and he's had a fine career in League One, League Two and the National League. He is in his prime as a goalkeeper and will provide excellent competition for Jack Rose who had such a good season last season.''
