Eastbourne snap up ex-Cards pair

Eastbourne Borough

Eastbourne Borough have signed keeper Danny Knowles and striker Liam Marum, following their release by Woking.

Knowles, 23, made 12 appearances for the Cards following his move from fellow relegated side Weymouth.

Manager Garry Wilson told BBC Sussex: "We're looking for a young keeper who can come through. We've watched Danny a few times. He's one for the future."

Marum, 21, scored just nine league goals in 79 appearances for the Cards since his debut in January 2007.

Wilson said: "We've done our homework on Liam, we spoke to previous coaches, team-mates and managers of his.

"We know maybe he's not hit the heights he should have done but we just feel it's a challenge for Liam to come into our side and progress the way he should be progressing because he has all the tools to make him a top player."

Meanwhile, midfielder Dan Brown has made his stay at Priory Lane permanent with the signing of a two-year deal. The 28-year-old was initially signed on loan from Cambridge United.

Goalkeeper Michael Jordan has also been rewarded with a new contract.

Also confirmed for Borough's 2009/10 squad so far are captain Paul Armstrong, top scorer Andy Atkin, Ben Austin, Darren Baker, Matt Crabb, Nathan Crabb, Marc Pullan, Matt Smart and Simon Wormull.
