Grenada international goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook, who made his debut for the Spice Boys in June, has joined English National League side, Bromley.

The signing came too late for Saturday’s away game at Dagenham & Redbridge, who went top of the fifth-tier table after beating Bromley 4-2.

The 27-year-old, who is of Grenadian and Jamaican descent, began his career as a youngster at Arsenal and played more than 50 games for Coventry City as well as having spells at Bury, Swindon Town, Shrewsbury Town, Macclesfield Town, Boreham Wood and Welling.

His Jamaica-born uncle James Cook was a former European and British super-middleweight boxing champion.

Charles-Cook is the brother of fellow professionals Anthony Cook, who plays for Cray Wanderers in the Isthmian League Premier Division, and Regan Charles-Cook, a midfielder who plays for Scottish Premiership club Ross County and the Spice Boys, having made his debut for Grenada in July.

He started all three CONCACAF Gold Cup matches as Grenada exited at the group stage.

All three brothers were born in England.

Reice’s debut for Grenada came in a World Cup qualifier against Antigua and Barbuda, who beat the Spice Boys 1-0.

Meanwhile, Myles Hippolyte, 26, a winger of Grenadian descent, scored a fourth-minute penalty on Saturday to get English League Two Scunthorpe’s season up and running, earning them their first victory of the campaign with a 1-0 success over Tranmere Rovers.

Hippolyte fired his spot-kick down the middle after the visitors had been penalised for a handball inside the box and although goalkeeper Joe Murphy got a hand to it he could not keep it out.

Dominic Poleon, 27, who is of St Lucian descent, followed up his hat-trick for sixth-tier Ebbsfleet United against Tonbridge Angels by scoring the 40th-minute opener in his National League South team’s 3-1 win over Hemel Hempstead Town.
