The 23-year-old full-back was Hamlet’s Players’ and Supporters’ Player of the Year last season, making 50 appearances in pink and purple during the campaign.

Felix signed a scholarship at Fulham aged 16 and spent two years at Craven Cottage before leaving without making a first team appearance and joining West London rivals QPR in 2018.

No stranger to Sussex, Felix spent some time on loan at Burgess Hill Town at the end of the 2018/19 season.

After his release by the R’s he went on to represent the likes of Woking, Maidstone, Billericay and Torquay United before settling at Champion Hill last summer.

Despite a difficult season for Hamlet that resulted in relegation from National League South, the tenacious defender shone throughout, even managing to pick up the club’s Goal of the Season award for a strike against Dover.

Adam Hinshelwood “Joe was excellent in our two games against Dulwich last season”. “He’s only 23 but has lots of experience already and is comfortable in a number of positions”.
