A major plus for Eastbourne Borough this season has been the form of central defender Ollie Rowe.

Rowe returned to the club at the start of the campaign and was a reliable performer under Garry Wilson and Nick Greenwood.

Tommy Widdrington took over the managerial reins in February and moved swiftly to make the talented young defender his captain.

Rowe has not disappointed his new boss and his form, alongside Luton Town loanee Alex Lacey, at the heart of the defence was a major reason why Borough avoided relegation.
