Eastbourne Borough boss Tommy Widdrington has added former Exeter city midfielder Chris Shephard to his squad.

Shephard, 23, made his début for Exeter City at home to Grimsby Town, in the 0–0 League Two draw on October 18, 2008.

He was loaned to Salisbury City in the 2009–10 season where Widdrington first worked with Shephard, and he later rejoined Salisbury City on a month-long loan deal in February 2011.

Chris also made five appearances for Bath City in 2012 on loan.

Widdrington said, “Chris is a creative midfield player who along with his ability also brings league experience to Priory Lane.”
