Lewes have made former Bristol City defender Henry Muggeridge their seventh signing of the summer.

The 20-year-old has joined the Rooks from Tonbridge Angels.

Muggeride was youth team captain at Bristol City and spent a season as a professional with the Robins, during which time he had a loan spell with Evo-Stick Southern League side Clevedon Town.

He joined Tonbridge on his release in the summer of 2012 and was supporters’ player-of-the-season in his first year with the club.

Tonbridge wanted to keep Muggeridge this summer but he was keen to explore his options and the offer to stay was later withdrawn.

He now links up with two former Tonbridge team-mates Gary Elphick and Luke Blewden at the Dripping Pan as well as their four other summer signings: Ollie Rowe, Sam Cole, Byron Napper and Terry Dodd.

Muggeridge hails from Sussex and his father, Sean, is joint manager at Crowborough.

The Lewes management team of Garry Wilson and Danny Bloor believe they are now close to having the squad they want for 2014-15.

Bloor said: “Henry is our seventh signing and we are where we want to be now. We won’t be looking for any more although we will have some trialists coming in pre-season.

“Henry can play right-back, left-back, right or left midfield and he comes with a good pedigree. Gary Elphick talks highly of him and he could be a really good signing. He is another player dropping down a level which is perhaps what you need.

“We are very content with what we have. The signing of Terry Dodd, who played for me at Worthing, was big for us.”
