Remy back at the Lane

Ellis Remy is back in business for Eastbourne Borough after he came off the bench to score on his return to Priory Lane.

The much-travelled striker followed Tommy Widdrington to the south coast midway through last season and impressed the Borough contingent, making 14 appearances as the club weaved their way to safety.

For reasons beyond football though, it seemed as if Remy would be unable to continue his career in Eastbourne and the 28-year-old left over the summer.

However, he made a welcome return to the club during the week, coming off the bench to score an equalising goal against Tonbridge Angels and now could well feature in the Sports’ cup clash with Hendon this weekend.

Remy returns to England fresh from a successful spell in the Montserrat International side where he scored two goals in three appearances, including a brace as his side thrashed the British Virgin Islands 7-0 in the Caribbean Cup Qualifying at the beginning of September for their first win as a FIFA member.

Montserrat are ranked 181st in the international peking order while the Virgin Isles are rated 195th.
