Brentford defender set for Boro' debut – Sigere off to Horsham

Eastbourne Borough today signed 6ft 2ins defender Karleigh Osborne on loan and he will go straight into the squad for Sunday's live TV clash with Stevenage Borough (1.30pm).

The 20 year-old graduated from Brentford Youth to a full professional contract with the West London club and has made more than 50 Football League appearances for them.

Earlier this season he had a successful six-match loan spell with Oxford United.

Meanwhile, former under-21 international Jean-Michel Sigere, who only joined Eastbourne Borough in the summer, has moved to Horsham on a three-month loan deal.

The former Rushden, Stevenage and Lewes striker made just five appearances for Borough.

Sunday's match will covered by Setanta, the first game ever to be televised live from Priory Lane.

But the Eastbourne club are hoping for a big crowd to cheer them to a much-needed victory to help them climb out of the relegation zone.

Chairman Len Smith said, "The players want that 12th man imput more than ever to help us climb back up the table.

Our fans are very loyal, but sometimes they let the opposing supporters win the cheering and vocals."
