EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell has formed a positive working relationship with Eastbourne Borough FC.

She said: “It was great to speak again with Eastbourne Borough FC Chairman David Blackmore about plans and prospects at the Club. 

“With the roadmap now published, it is really good news that the Youth section will be returning soon. 

I fully supported the challenge Borough made to their governing body’s vote to end the season. 

“There’s going to be wider, longer term reform on governance in the sport, and opportunities for Chairmen like David to input.  I raised this with Sports Minister, Nigel Huddleston, who I have invited to Eastbourne.

“I will be introducing him to David and looking forward to stepping back to Priory Lane!”
