Eastbourne Town striker Danny Curd is finally fit for selection following an injury-hit campaign.

Curd has enjoyed a recent successful loan period at County League two side Mile Oak.

The striker, who was expected to make quite an impact at the Saffrons this season, has scored three goals in his last two games at Mile Oak and Town boss Danny Bloor hopes to have him available for selection against Dulwich Hamlet at the Saffrons tomorrow (Saturday).

New signings Aaron Hopkinson and experienced defender Tom Graves will provide Town with further options.

Bloor said, “We put him out on loan to get some fitness and he has done very well. Danny is a good player we have not not seen the best of him this season because of injury but hopefully he will have better luck in 2012.”

Of the two new additions Bloor added, “Aaron is pacy wide player while Tom is an experienced defender. I’m sure they will be tremendous assets to the squad.”

Curd, Hopkinson and Graves all face a battle to break their way into the side.

Bloor is happy with the team’s performances recently and expects his men to give Dulwich a real test.

“We know they are a good side. They have beaten us twice already this season but we saw things in those matches that encouraged us.

“If we can show the same level as we have shown recently against Whitehawk and Whyteleafe we believe we can get at them.”

Town’s league position also received a boost this week without kicking a ball.

Croydon Athletic will not complete their fixtures and their record has been expunged. Meaning Town claim three points having lost to them earlier in the season.

Town’s number two goalkeeper Callum Christie has been sent on loan.
