It's May Day For Hamlet As Rose Does A Triple Deal

Dulwich Hamlet have added their third new signing ahead of their National League South bow.

Striker Jay May had today officially put pen to paper after weeks of speculation linking him with the club.

May, the former Margate and Maidstone United player, is rated highly by his new manager Gavin Rose.

“Jay is one of the strongest Non-League centre-forwards around,” said the Hamlet boss.

“He has played National League and National League South football for a few years. He also brings experience and physicality, which we hadn’t really got.”

Defender Marcus Okuonghae also signs, he brings in a huge amount of experience, having previously played over 200 games for Colchester United before a spell at Maidstone United.

The 32-year-old, ex-Colchester captain spent last season at Welling United and is someone Rose has known for a number of years.

“With Magnus, I have known him since he was 16. At the end of last season I got on the phone to him and asked if he would come and help us out.

“He has played a lot of league games and has been captain at most of the teams he’s played for. He has started a career off the pitch and it suits him to be part-time.”

Former Chelsea defender Daniel Pappoe also joins the club – the 24-year-old has spent time at Colchester United, Crawley Town and Brighton.
