If Eastbourne Borough are to progress to the next round of FA Trophy they will have to be weary of prolific striker Steve Spriggs.

He has scored 13-goals this season, which has helped propel Kings Lynn Town to second in the Evo-Stik Division One South.

24-year-old Spriggs is in fine form, having scored a hat-trick in the last round as they eased past higher-level Carshalton Athletic 6-1.

Having started his career at Kings Lynn aged 19, he found his feet as a young striker for Mildenhall Town.

Then after helping Norfolk-side Wroxham reach the FA Vase final, Spriggs signed for Kings Lynn in 2010, scoring 44 goals in two seasons.

He has formed a strong partnership with forward Russell Dunkley, the pair sharing 20 goals already this campaign.

They have proved instrumental in helping the Yachtsmen to a thirteen-game unbeaten.

Borough’s defence can afford no mistakes.
