Folkestone Invicta are delighted to announce the signing of Kane Penn from Hastings United.

The midfielder came through the Hastings United Academy before moving on to SCFL side Eastbourne United.

Kane returned to Pilot Field in 2021, becoming part of the side that would win the Isthmian South East Division and promotion to the Isthmian Premier Division.

He made his first appearance of the season at Cheriton Road in a goalless midweek draw, going on to make 49 appearances and scoring six times, with his performances seeing him pick up the Manager’s, Players’, Directors’ & Supporters’ Player of the Season awards for 2022/23.

“It’s a new challenge for me and I can’t wait to get started. I like the vision of where the club wants to go and hopefully I can do my part to help get there. I’m looking forward to meeting the lads and getting to work!” – Kane Penn

“Kane is a talented young footballer with great energy and tenacity. He is comfortable anywhere in the midfield or defence and showed this on numerous occasions last season. Both Mev and I are very pleased to get the deal done and can’t wait to work with him.” – Roland Edge

We are delighted to welcome Kane to the Alcaline Stadium as our second signing of the summer. Keep your eyes on our website and social media channels for more news as we continue to build for the new season.
