64 Diners sat down at Eastbourne Borough FC today to enjoy a marvellous 2 course Chicken lunch with Banoffee pudding.

The guest speaker was first team Captain and 11 year club stalwart, Ben Austin, who gave a very informative talk on how he has assisted the clubs rise and how he juggles being a full time teacher and playing in the top flight of non-league football. We heard some interesting stories of changing room pranks over the years and how now the team are operating in a much more professional way to achieve status.

Len smith and Ben enlightened the members on what was needed to bring more crowds into Priory Lane and to progress to full time football at the site.

Presentations were made to the winners of the Borough Means Business 6 a side tournament held on 17th April, Barclays Bank of Eastbourne beat the former holders, DB Domestics in the final which was played in the main stadium.
