This Tuesday, 10th January Eastbourne Borough travel to Bognor Regis Town in the 3rd round of the Sussex Senior Cup.
For this fixture we will be fielding a squad made up in the main of U18 and dual signed squad members for this fixture.
Chairman, David Blackmore said..
“We are so pleased that this fixture gives us the opportunity to give even more of our young players to chance to shine and force their way into the First team as so many already have.
We respect this competition and always want to progress as far as we can and are as excited as Danny is that he has the opportunity to utilise his entire squad for this game”
Danny Bloor said…
“I have been very impressed with the Under 18s squad players that have been in and around the first team training sessions so far this season and I am excited to see them play as part of the first team squad in this fixture.
With the U18 squad having had an extended Christmas break this gives them the chance to get straight back into it and play in front of me and my management team.
We have some fantastic young players at the club, four of them were on the bench at Bath.
The only way you find out about young players is by playing them and I am thrilled to be able to give so many the opportunity.
We only have to look at Leone Gravata this season. He has grabbed the opportunity given to him and is now one of our most important players and one of the best wide players within the National League South.
Having had our 2nd longest journey of the season to Bath on Saturday, we entertain Worthing this Saturday and then have our the longest journey of the season travelling to Taunton next Tuesday it’s been a packed New Year so far.
Chris Whelpdale and James Vaughan were ruled out injured for the Bath game and Jack Burchell and Brad Barry picked up injuries in that game making them all doubtful for this Saturday fixture at the So Legal Community Stadium.”
Kick off 3pm
