Maidstone swoop for Crystal Palace forward

Friday 26th January 2018

MAIDSTONE United have brought in forward Andre Coker on loan from Premier League Crystal Palace.
Coker, 20, will be at the Gallagher Stadium for the rest of the season. 
Primarily a winger, he has been a regular in the Eagles' development side over the past couple of seasons. He can also play as a striker. 
Manager Jay Saunders told the club's official website: "It's an opportunity we jumped at. I'm delighted to get him on board. 
"He's got good pace, good feet and he's different to what we've already got."
Coker added: "I'm really looking forward to this opportunity."
