Big Challenge for new look Eagles

A new and exciting-looking Eastbourne Eagles squad come under starter's orders for the first time tonight (Saturday) as the 2008 campaign opens with a Craven Shield clash against Swindon Robins.

Eagles return to Arlington (7.30pm) after a winter of changes to face a side who became serial runners up in all three major competitions in season 2007.

With Bob Brimson having made the heart wrenching decision to hand over the reins after only one year in charge of the Eagles, this left the way clear for incoming promoter Martin Hagon and his backroom team to put in place the blueprint which hopefully will safeguard the long term future of the famous Sussex club.
