Bromley have snapped up former Crystal Palace defender Ben Wynter.
The 19-year-old is the latest in a series of new faces at Hayes Lane, as the Ravens look to build on a hugely successful last campaign in the National League.
Bromley finished 10th last season and have added the likes of Adam Mekki and David Gregory in recent weeks, while retaining the services of Louis Dennis.
Speaking to the club’s website, boss Neil Smith said: “We’ve watched Ben for a while when he was at Crystal Palace and I tried to bring him in last season.
“I’m delighted to have signed Ben, who can play centre back or right back, and I want him to develop under the guidance of Alan Dunne.
“He’s a great acquisition not just for the short term but for the long term.”
Wynter added: “I’m delighted to sign for Bromley, it was an easy decision for me personally.
“I’m a local boy from the area and when I found out of the interest from the club I sat down with the manager and when he shared with me the plans for the future of the club and for myself personally I knew I wanted to be a part of it.
“The club is definitely going in the right direction and I can’t wait to get started.”
