Hippolyte completes Malcolm deal

Maidenhead United boss Johnson Hippolyte has reinforced his strikeforce with the signing of striker Michael Malcolm from Whitehawk.

The 27-year-old scored nine goals in 21 appearances to help Whitehawk win the Ryman Premier Division title.

Hippolyte has been an admirer of the forward for a while and was delighted to get the former Tottenham Hotspur man.

“He was one of my main targets,” he told the Maidenhead Advertiser. “I’ve been after him for two or three years so I’m happy to finally have him on board.

“He can play up front on his own, just behind the striker or out wide. He will give us plenty of options.”

Malcolm spent five years with Spurs before moving on to Kettering Town, Weymouth, Crawley Town, Farnborough, Lewes and Bromley before joining the Hawks in January.
