Eastbourne Town boss Danny Bloor said he will consider giving new signing Ben Austin a ‘new challenge’ next season.

With Town players Steve Fogden and defensive partner Steve Eliiott enjoying a fine season at the heart of the defence, Bloor said, he might look to play Austin in central midfield.

“Bloor said, “It might be just the challenge he needs. We want Ben to enjoy his football at Town.

“I want him to forget about the captaincy and caretaker-manager roles he had at Boro’ and concentrate on his football.”

Of playing in midfield, Austin added, “If we have the conversation, I would suggest my best position is central defence.”
