Boro’ hope the crowds will return

Eastbourne Borough will hope to get back to winning ways in the Blue Square Bet Premier when they welcome Mansfield Town to Priory Lane this Saturday.

Despite Bank Holiday Monday’s disappointing display chairman Len Smith will be hoping more fans will turn-out to support Boro’ this crunch clash.

A worryingly low crowd of 983 turned up and produced a flat atmosphere at Priory Lane to watch ex-league club Cambridge United.

In the Ryman League division one south Eastbourne Town travel to Sittingbourne. Danny Bloor’s men are also require a much-needed three points after their 5-3 defeat against Whitehawk on New Year’s.

In the County League division one Paul Daubeney’s Eastbourne United side travel to the Caburn to take on Ringmer while Kenny McCreadie’s Hailsham Town will look to bounce back from their Bank Holiday 2-1 home defeat against Peacehaven when they welcome high-flying Three Bridges to the Beaconsfield.
