Eastbourne Borough boss Tommy Widdrington is keen to thrash out deals with five of his most consistent performers from last season.

Despite cuts in budget for the 2013-14 campaign, Widdrington remains hopeful he can convince Elliott Charles, Gary Hart, Simon Johnson (pictured) , Sam Cole and Matt Aldred that their future is at Priory Lane.

Widdrington said, “I am keen to get these deals tied up sooner rather than later. We already have seven signed on for next season and, if these lads agree, I think that will give us a good starting point.

“I have two or three targets that I’m hoping to bring in before the start of the season but again we have to cut our cloth accordingly and work within the budget we are given by the club.”
