Maidstone United

Reaching the last eight of the F.A Trophy was Maidstone United’s highlight last season after finishing bottom of the National League. Relegation after one season back in non-league’s top flight, the Stones claimed just five victories, conceded over one hundred goals and finished twenty five points from safety. Maidstone United last tasted league victory on 26 November, by January Hakan Heyrettin was sacked and at close of play they had gone twenty-five matches without a win. It got even worse for their former manager, going down with Dulwich Hamlet. Ex-Dartford striker, Jack Barham top scored for the Kent club in a season Stones fans will quickly want to forget. Instead, they can reminisce over their last campaign in the National South when they went up as champions.

2022/2023 Season
National League: 24th
F.A Cup: 4th Qualifying Round
F.A Trophy: Quarter-Final
County Cup: 2nd Round
Top League Scorer: Jack Barham (9 goals)

Manager – George Elokobi

It’s been just over a year since Elokobi retired from playing football, which included a career that took him from Dulwich Hamlet to the Premier League. The former defender was spotted at Hamlet at an early age by Colchester United and four years later he was playing at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship. Wolves won the league to gain promotion to the Premier League, where they stayed for three seasons. Elokobi moved on with spells at Oldham Athletic, a return to Colchester United, Leyton Orient and Aldershot Town before becoming a fans favourite at Maidstone United. 

Summer Transfers

Following relegation there has been a bit of a clear out as George Elokobi sets to shape a new look squad. Devonte Aransiba and Chi Ezennolim come in from Kent sides Tonbridge Angels and Welling United, Lamar Reynolds joins from Braintree Town, Levi Amantchi from Brackley Town and Razzaq Coleman De-Graft from Lewes. After impressing on trial Conor Kelly and Ogo Obi join the Stones.
