Danny Bloor plans to speak to Eastbourne Borough and hopes to extend the loan deal for flying winger Ross Treleaven.

The Boro’ attacker, whose month long loan from Eastbourne Borough officially ended on Monday, has enjoyed regular football with Town having arrived on loan following the departure of Nathan Crabb to Lewes.

Bloor was pleased with Treleaven’s form especially his superb match-winning strike against Crawley Down last Saturday which Bloor hailed as ‘One of the best you will see this season.’

The Town boss added, “Ross did some good stuff for us while he was here. I don’t know what the situation is at the moment in terms of extending his loan, I’ll have to speak to Tommy (Widdrington).”

Eastbourne Town travel to Hythe Town this weekend looking for a fourth win in six matches following their recent scalps of Bognor Regis Town, Sittingbourne and Crawley Down.

Hythe Town are also hovering in mid-table, two places above this weekend’s visitors.

“It’ll be a tough game. It’s never easy to go to Hythe but we’re in good spirit and confident at the moment.”

Between now and the end of the season Bloor will look to give the younger members of his squad a chance to shine.

He said, “Max Hollebone, Nathan Guy, Josh Brunt, Dexter Coleman and Joe Summerbell are all ones that have impressed. Max Hollebone is obviously the stand-out having played for England youth. I’ve got a lot of time for him.”

Bloor has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s clash, but feels injuries have played an important part in Town’s season this year.

“Out of our last five games, the only one we lost was the one where we had five players missing. We’ve had a number of players missing all season and I think that if we hadn’t, we’d be higher up the league.

Kai Bichard is available for selection after serving a suspension.
