KENT newcomer Danno Verge has committed his future to the club by becoming a full asset of the Kings.Verge, who will turn 19 just before the opening fixture of the new season at Central Park, switches to his local club from Scunthorpe.He said: “I am looking forward to racing for Kent in the National League next season; it's my local club literally as it's only 20 minutes from my house, so it’s perfect to have your home track on your doorstep.
