The club finished 14th in the National League South last season and have already been moving in the transfer market with the signing of Havant and Waterlooville striker Matt Paterson.
The announcement, though, came with a twist as the new addition was pictured penning his deal not from the club's boardroom, but from the window booth at a local McDonald's restaurant.
Needless to say, this bizarre move caught the attention of social media.

It became such a hit that McDonald's were forced to respond themselves.
