Eastbourne have not to date had as successful season than they perhaps anticipated when they appointed Bognor’s Manager at the start of the season. However, they will present a stiff challenge, as they have some good players. Will be a challenge to our unbeaten run. One player of note is Mark Smith, who is just coming to the end of his second loan spell from Aldershot. Not sure what his future is at Aldershot , their fans think he will be released, whereas at Eastbourne, their fans have been pleased with his displays. With the exception of Sam, Mark is perhaps the best keeper we have had over the last two or three seasons, he played especially well in the final Isthmian game of the season against Enfield . He will no doubt prove to be a stumbling block. As for the team, injuries permitting, Wynter might return, but would not expect McAuley to be available. Unless Dowse has another surprise! Any thoughts?
