Eastbourne Borough FC will play behind closed doors on Monday at Priory Lane.

The club has issued this statement:

“Following the latest Government announcement regarding tier status and the fact we are moving to tier 4, the club can confirm the following.

Our game against Maidstone United on the 28th December will now be behind closed doors after confirmation from The National League.

All tickets that have been purchased will have be refunded directly to the debit / credit card that they were purchased with.

The club will ensure the game is live streamed and will announce the relevant links in due course.

Whilst it is very disappointing to not have our supporters at Priory Lane backing Danny’s boys we all have to look at the bigger picture and abide by Government regulations.

The Board of Directors would like to thank all of our volunteers and supporters for their continued help and support over this very unusual and difficult time.

We wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and implore you to please stay safe and we will be together again in the very near future.”
