Ebbsfleet United have completed the signing of Antigua & Barbuda international Marvin McCoy.
The 27-year-old right-back signs as a free agent having left former club York City in January, where he spent a season and a half and was a teammate of current Fleet defender Dave Winfield.
McCoy began his career as a trainee at Arsenal, and joined Watford, but it was at Wealdstone where he made his name. He joined the club in 2008, and went on to make 65 appearances and won Players’ Player of the year in 2010.
Shortly after that accolade, McCoy impressed while on trial at Wycombe Wanderers and signed a one-year deal, before staying at the club for four years and amassing over 100 appearances for the Chairboys.
McCoy, who has eight caps for his national side, soon made the right-back position his own at Adams Park, and helped the club win promotion to League One in the 2010/11 season, before also helping the club fight off relegation from the Football League in the 2013/14 season.
He moved to York City in 2014, making another 50 Football League appearances while at Bootham Crescent, but was released after a year and a half.
His signing today at Ebbsfleet means he will go straight into contention for the club’s game at Hungerford Town tomorrow.
