Ricky Shakes, the Guyanan international, joined the Harriers in the summer of 2012 from Ebbsfleet Utd where he had been their star player for the previous four years. His signing is something of a coup for the Harriers.
He started his career as a youngster with his hometown club Charlton but was quickly snapped up by Bolton Wanderers. He stayed with them for eighteen months and two loan outs before joining Swindon Town. It was there that he blossomed but after two seasons he left to join Brentford.
From there he joined up with Ebbsfleet and really impressed. Whenever we played against him he always seemed to have a good game and was always the standout player.
He's joined the Harriers on an initial one year deal.
