Eastbourne Borough are delighted to welcome defensive midfielder Imran Uche to the club.

The versatile 23-year-old is the newest addition to Mark Beard’s squad and joins from Isthmian Premier side Billericay Town.

Originally from Richmond, Uche joined the Hampton & Richmond Borough Academy aged 16, completing the two year programme, and captaining the side for his second year. Upon graduating, Imran moved into the non-league game, but returned to Hampton every pre-season where his improvement was noted each year.

After spending the 2019/20 season with Bedfont Sports in the Isthmian League South Central, Imran once again spent pre-season with the Beavers, and Gary McCann saw enough in the friendly matches to offer the then 20 year old a first team place.

He then joined Harrow Borough for the 2021/22 campaign, before a move to Essex last season. Able to play across the midfield or defence, he will be a welcome addition to the team.

Welcome, Imran!
