The loan agreement, with immediate effect, brings Alfie to the SO Legal Community Stadium until the end of season 22-23.
Bendle, who turns 18 next Friday, is an attacking midfielder who has already featured in the Dons first team squad and is highly rated by manager Johnnie Jackson and his staff. Alfie, who hails from the South Coast, was associated with Lewes FC as a youngster before being snapped up by AFC Wimbledon.
“This is a terrific signing for Eastbourne Borough, and one which can only benefit all parties”
“This is a terrific signing for Eastbourne Borough, and one which can only benefit all parties,” commented Sports manager Danny Bloor. “Alfie is a gifted player who will be able to prove himself in the high-quality arena of National South, and I am sure that our supporters will instantly take to him.”
CEO John Bonar added: “We are delighted to get this signing over the line, and we are hugely grateful once again to our good friends at AFC Wimbledon. They are a fantastic club with a great reputation for bringing through good young footballers – witness Jack Currie, who enjoyed such a fine season with us, and returned to AFC and straight into the first team squad.”
Alfie goes straight into the Borough squad to play Hungerford Town on Saturday (21st) at Priory Lane.
