Midfielder Mo Dabre had two separate loan spells from Swindon Town either side of a knee injury that sidelined him for a couple of months at the back end of last year.

He played 21 times for the Reds, scoring 5 goals, two of which coming in the memorable thrashing of Havant and Waterlooville at Westleigh Park.

Forward Davide Rodari was no stranger to the club having had a short but successful loan spell during 2021/22 when he scored four times in just five appearances.

The Crawley Town man arrived in January having spent the first half of the season with Dartford, scoring the first goal of his second loan spell against his former club in an impressive 3-0 win.

He went on to score six times in 24 appearances, most memorably in the opening minutes of the play-off eliminator with Braintree Town.

Portsmouth’s Liam Vincent also arrived in January just weeks after hitting a hat trick at Woodside Road for Hampton & Richmond Borough for whom he spent this first half of the season.

He hit the ground running with a goal on his debut, a sweet strike to give his new side the lead against Sussex rivals Eastbourne Borough.

He went on to make 17 appearances, the last of which coming at the American Express Community Stadium as the Reds fought off Bognor Regis Town on penalties to lift the Sussex Senior Cup.

The final loan signing of the season came in the form of Jack Paxman from runaway Champions Ebbsfleet United in late March.

The cultured midfielder’s performances lifted the team who were on a run of five games without a win prior to his arrival, helping inspire a turnaround that would see them win six of the last seven league games to secure a play-off spot.

However an injury picked up in the eliminator win over Braintree Town would end his season and leave Adam Hinshelwood without the 29-year-old’s presence for the semi final defeat to Oxford City.
