Dorking Wanderers are today pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Aaron Kuhl from Slough Town.
Aaron, 27, came through the academy at Reading FC, signing a professional contact with the club in December 2013. Going on to make several first team appearances for the Berkshire side, Aaron's time at Reading also included loan spells at Dundee United and Boreham Wood, and during these years he also represented England at U19 and U20 level.
In 2019 Aaron moved across the county to National League South side Slough Town. His first season at Arbour Park concluded with the club finishing 5th in the league and securing a play-off place, going on to be defeated by Dartford away in the eliminator stage.
In recent seasons Aaron has been a regular, consistent player for Slough, renowned for his versatility and energetic displays from central midfield. He capped a fine individual season for 'The Rebels' last term by winning the 'Supporters Trust' and 'Player's Player Of The Year' awards for 2021/22.
Wanderers manager Marc White confirms that Aaron has been a target for the club for some time:
'Aaron is someone we ear-marked as able to be part of our new journey for this season. Having only been promoted in June of last year, we were unable to do the usual recruitment we would normally do. Aaron was someone on our shortlist of targets at that time, and we are delighted to finally get him on a long term deal'
However, the wait to see Aaron in a red and white shirt will be prolonged for a little bit longer, as Marc White adds:
'Supporters should note that Aaron is currently injured! He is not expected to feature for probably four weeks but will be in and around the club and we look forward to welcoming him in.'
It has been confirmed the new Wanderers man will wear the No25 shirt, and he is really looking forward to getting started:
'I'm delighted to be joining Dorking, such a great club. So grateful to be given the opportunity to play in the National League again. I can't wait to get going and look forward to getting involved in the coming weeks.'
Manager Marc White finally adds:
'Aaron is someone who arrives with a great deal of pedigree having played in the Championship for Reading. He was once on the radar of Patrick Viera during his time as Director Executive at Manchester City.
Aaron is a combative player, physically strong and we think he will be a great addition for us.'
Incidentally, today's announcement take's place on the day of Aaron's birthday! On behalf of everyone at the club, we wish Aaron a very happy birthday!
