Loxwood striker snapped up by Ryman League club

LOXWOOD striker Damon Aston has been signed by Burgess Hill Town.

The 21-year-old Magpies frontman impressed the Ryman League side when Barry Hunter’s County League Division 2 men played them in the Sussex Senior Cup.

Aston had been linked with Horsham during the summer and Hillians boss Gary Croydon was delighted to complete the signing.

He said: “Damon scored 40-odd goals in 60-odd games at Loxwood and I was impressed when we played them,” said Croydon. “He went to Horsham around summer time to have a look and clearly is ambitious.”
