Town sign keeper Josh

Eastbourne Town have signed goalkeeper Josh Pelling from County League side Sidley United.

Pelling is expected to be available for selection for Town’s Ryman League division one South home match against Chipstead at the Saffrons on Saturday.

Bloor said, “It is an area we were looking to improve.”

Josh will battle it out for the number one jersey with Sam Reed and recent signing Greg Nessling.

However Bloor will be missing the talents of Steve Elliot, Luke Denton, Adam Davidson, Joe Summerbell and Max Hollobone.

Ben Austin faces a late fitness test on his dead leg.

Bloor added, “The cups have been an interruption recently. It’s a chance to get our league campaign going.”
