Eastbourne Town winger Sam Crabb has signed dual-registration with County League one side Rye United.

Crabb has been forced to look elsewhere for regular first team football as Richard Geenfield has been ahead of the former United player for the right midfield slot at the Saffrons.

Town boss Bloor said, “We all had a chat and thought it was best that Sam signed on for them to get some extra minutes under his belt.

“When he came on against Maidstone we thought he looked a bit rusty. Hopefully this will do the trick for him because we want to see him back to his best.”

Bloor has yet to decide if Sam will be involved against Sittingbourne on Saturday.

Meanwhile striker Trevor McCreadie, son of Hailsham Town boss Kenny, has signed for Town.
