Lee Bradbury has added a fantastic young centre-back to the squad with Norwich City’s Ciaren Jones signing on a seasons loan at Priory Lane.

Jones joined City from Luton Town last summer and made 19 appearances for the Development Squad last year.

Jones said: “I’m delighted to be making a step up from U23s football with my first loan move. It’s going to be good for me to get some proper experience of men’s football.

“I’m really excited to get started in a tough league. I look forward to playing many games for Eastbourne.”

Boro manager Lee Bradbury added “I am absolutely delighted that we have managed to secure the signature of Ciaren Jones from Premier League club Norwich City.

Ciaren is a fantastic footballing centre half that just needs some mens football for him to mature into the player he wants to be. I honestly think this lad has a bright future ahead of him and I am excited at the prospect of him playing for us next season.
