Devonte's back!


Midfielder returns, on loan, to end of season

Tonbridge Angels can confirm the return to the club of Devonte Aransibia on a loan agreement with Maidstone United for the rest of the season.

Devonte enjoyed a successful time at the Halcyon Wealth Longmead Stadium last season making 32 appearances, scoring seven goals in the process.

During the close season, Devonte felt that he wanted full-time football and signed for Maidstone United, but his opportunities have been limited and he had a loan spell last month at Braintree Town.

Jay Saunders said, “Bringing in Devonte gives us additional strength and options in midfield. He also offers us goals, which we saw last season. At this point in the campaign, it’s important for us to have greater depth of squad. Devonte knows many of the players and was well liked when he was here, so he should fit back in very well.”

Devonte said after training with his new (and old) teammates: “I’m really delighted to be coming back to Tonbridge Angels. I was very happy here last season and didn’t really want you to leave, but I felt I had to try and play full time football. All my efforts now will be to do the best I can for this club.”
