Former boss Wilson back at the Lane for a day

Two familiar faces returned to Priory Lane on Saturday as Garry Wilson and Ben Austin swung by to watch Borough’s Blue Square South clash with Dover Athletic.

After 13 years in the management hot-seat at the Lane, Wilson made his first visit back since leaving the club in January and joining Eastbourne Town as an assistant to Danny Bloor, who was also in the stands on Saturday.

Borough’s ex-skipper Austin, who spent six years at the club but also now associates himself with their neighbours, joined his new manager to watch his former teammates as they went down by three goals to high-flying and big-spending Dover.

The Town trio were able to watch their rivals after their Ryman League Division One South match with Sittingbourne was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

After such great service to the club, it was unsurprising that they both received a warm welcome at the Lane, by staff and fans alike.
