Eastbourne Borough are excited to announce the signing of Finn Ballard McBride, subject to international clearance.

The 24-year old Australian forward joins the Sports on the back of a four year stay in America, where he played for the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Prior to that, he came through the youth system at Sydney FC in his homeland, where he played from 15 years old – progressing through to the A League club’s Under 20 and Reserve Team.

Borough boss Adam Murray said: “I’m really happy to have Finn on board.

“I believe he is a natural finisher and will add to our fire power.

“He had been training with a National League team, but decided to join our project and be part of our challenge.

“I look forward to getting his clearance through and watching him play his part in our journey.”
