Sheppey United are excited to reveal the capture of central defender Sinn’Kaye Christie.

The 26 year old offers the Ites good experience having played at clubs such as Haywards Heath, Cray Wanderers, Ramsgate, Margate and Dover Athletic.

At Pitching In Isthmian Premier side Cray Wanderers, Sinn’Kaye made twenty two appearances. He then moved down to the Kent coast, signing for Margate, and played another sixteen times.

The player spent the 21-22 campaign with Haywards Heath Town, where he was a big part of their play off charge, making forty two appearances up to and including their Play Off Semi-Final shootout defeat.

Last season the defender turned out for both Ramsgate and Dover Athletic.

Manager Ernie Batten said, “Getting the spine of the team sorted was important and ‘Sinnks’ gives us good options and reassurance at the back. He’s played at good levels and I’m sure he’ll quickly form a relationship with Lekan and the rest of our defence.”

Sinnks added, “Happy to finally get the deal all sorted. I’m now buzzing to get going and meeting the supporters down at Holm Park.”

Assistant Manager Darren Blackburn has been a long time admirer of the defender, Blackburn said, “Sinnks is a player that I’ve kept tabs on since voting for him in the Isthmian team of the season a few years ago. He’s pacy and athletic, which are two very important assets at this level and he’s decent on the ball.

“It took a few calls and a bit of nerve to hold out for him with other clubs keep making offers, that he obviously had to consider, but I felt he was worth waiting for and I am really pleased to have him on board. He’s a a great lad with a good character and I believe he’ll fit in really well here.”

Fellow Assistant Manager added, “Welcome and a great addition to the squad.

“Being an ex central defender myself I look forward to working with him as we rebuild our back four. He has a great background being at Ramsgate and Dover and I am sure he will fit in well and enjoy his football.”

Sinn’Kaye will wear shirt 5.
