Faversham Town pair Kieran Oliver and Daniel King have both signed dual registration forms with Woodstock Sports.
Woodstock Sports play in the Southern Counties East League and ground share with Sittingbourne at Woodstock Park.
Lilywhites manager Ray Turner commented: “They (the pair) are very much part of my future plans.
“But, I feel this will complete their transition into the first-team.”
The duo will remain available to play for the under-21 and first-team sides when selected.
Faversham boss to take no chances with FA Cup Prize-Money at stake
Faversham Town vs Westfield – Saturday 30th August 2014, 3pm kick-off (Shepherd Neame Stadium, Salters Lane, Faversham, Kent. Postcode: ME13 8ND).
Lilywhites manager Ray Turner is set to resist the temptation of utilizing his large squad against Westfield in the FA Cup Preliminary Round.
The likes of Renford Tenyue, Daniel King and Kieran Oliver have all struggled to force their way into the first-team starting line-up in recent weeks.
However, Turner is likely to keep faith with the bulk of the team, which beat Herne Bay 4-1 to move Town up to second in the Ryman South table.
Dean Grant scored his first competitive Faversham goal, while Jack Harris scored his first goal in his second loan spell with the Lilywhites.
The victors of this tie will pick up £1,925, with £3,000 going to the winners in the next round – which will be played away at Leatherhead.
Turner is aware of how crucial this money can be, and after the win over Herne Bay said: “We have got to win the game.
“They play in the Combined Counties Premier, so it’s not an easy game. It’s easy to trip yourself up in these sorts of games, and ultimately, the prize-money is critical to this club.
“It helps to keep the squad together.”
Whereas the hosts have won four of their first six competitive matches this season, their opponents – who play in the Cherry Red Combined Counties League, Premier Division – have made an indifferent start to their campaign.
Westfield came from two goals down to beat Guildford City 3-2 to pick up their first victory of the league season on Wednesday.
The home team may stick to the 3-5-2 formation used against the Bay on Monday with Jamie Maxted and John Scarborough still closing in on full fitness after respective knocks.

Faversham Town and Herne Bay aim for bounce back Bank Holiday
Faversham Town and Herne Bay will attempt to bounce back from defeats just 48 hours earlier on Bank Holiday Monday.
The Lilywhites fell to a 3-1 loss against league leaders Chipstead, despite a Wayne Wilson penalty and playing against 10-men for the final half hour.
Whilst, the visitors, were defeated 2-0 at home to Walton & Hersham through goals from Tony Reid and Tarome Hemmings.
The loss for Town saw them drop from third to six in the Ryman South league table, while Bay are seven places and two points further behind at this stage.
Club captain John Scarborough continued his recovery from injury in Faversham’s under-21s 2-1 defeat to Worthing and could return to the squad.
In addition, Kieran Oliver scored the under-21s first competitive goal of the season against Worthing and may return to the side too.
There may also be a place in the squad for Daniel King with former Herne Bay defender Jamie Maxted substituted at half-time against Chipstead, as the Lilywhites attempted to ignite a comeback.
Maxted’s replacement was former Herne Bay skipper Luke Harvey, who will look to continue his excellent goal scoring record over his ex-club.
Harvey has scored three times in four appearances for Faversham against the Bay, since he left the away side, including the only goal when the teams last met at the Shepherd Neame Stadium.
Dean Grant, Sam Bewick, Rob French and Darren Marsden also have had spells with the visitors at Winch’s Field.
