Despite playing in two defeats following his arrival Long has been impressed with the type of football played by his new club.

He said, “There was interest from other clubs but Eastbourne was the one that really appealed to me.

“We played them earlier in the season and they play good football.

“Everything about the move appealed to me. The club are in a good position and pushing for the play-off spots and I want to help towards that.

“The lads have been great and think the way they play football is brilliant and I really enjoy that. Training has been good, the games have been good and although results have not been what we would have liked. It’s been enjoyable playing in a team that wants to try and play the right way.

“I have signed on a months loan and then it’s up to both parties. We will see where it goes from there.”
