It comes off the back of a magnificent season for the 24-year-old; consistent as ever in defence, he also contributed in attack with 5 goals and 12 assists.

His performances earned him Adam Hinshelwood’s Manager’s Player of the Year award at the end of the season.

A former youth player at the club he was brought back to Woodside Road almost immediately after Hinshelwood’s re-appointment in October 2017.

A mainstay of the team ever since he celebrated his 200th appearance for the club in the Sussex Senior Cup final triumph at the American Express Community Stadium last month.
