Watford Under-23 goalkeeper Sam Howes has made a loan move to Eastbourne Borough and has already helped them take three points.

Howes featured in the New Year’s Day fixture against Dulwich Hamlet in which Borough ran out 2-1 winners.

The keeper was beaten by Dipo Akinyemi in the first half, but produced a flying stop to deny Nyren Clunis in the second, before his side went on to claim the victory.

The 21-year-old former West Ham United player will remain with the National League South side until the end of the 2018/19 season.
