Darren Lok has become the fifth player at Eastbourne Borough to sign a new contract for the 2014-15 season.

The striker netted nine goals in 45 appearances in all competitions last season.

He follows Adam Watts, Matt Aldred, Elliott Levy and Simon Johnson in agreeing a new deal at Priory Lane.

Skipper Ian Simpemba is already under contract for next season while manager Tommy Widdrington is waiting on answers from six other players who have been made offers to stay.

Widdrington said: “Darren’s progress and improvement has mirrored that of the team and I expect that to continue, such is his willingness to listen and his commitment to the cause.

“He actually played (but couldn’t train) for almost the last two months of the past season with a suspected broken toe.”
