Eastbourne Borough are delighted to announce the signing of Isaac Pitblado from Hampton & Richmond Borough.

The 22-year-old impressed at left-back for the Beavers last season, and he can also play in the centre of defence or at left wing-back.

“I am thrilled to have Isaac on board,” said boss Adam Murray.

“He had a great season last year, fighting for the play-offs and was part of a very strong defence.

“We feel he will bring great quality to our team and will develop within our philosophy.”

A former Scotland Youth international, Pitblado started his career as a scholar at Queens Park Rangers before graduating to the Under 23 side in the summer of 2021.

He had his first taste of senior football in a loan spell at Cheshunt in November 2022, which after an initial month was extended to the end of the season.

Having impressed at Theobalds Lane, he joined Hampton last season where he scored five goals for the Beavers and was a regular part of the team which just missed out on the play-offs in the National League South.

Welcome to Priory Lane, Isaac!
