Eastbourne Borough manager Jamie Howell has made his first signing since taking over at Priory Lane by adding Whitehawk’s Argentinian midfielder Sergio Torres to his squad.
Torres spent time with the likes of Wycombe Wanderers and Peterborough United before playing a key role in Crawley’s promotion into the Football League and then into League One.
In 2011 he was part of the Reds historic run to the Fifth Round of the FA Cup.
After putting the likes of Swindon Town and Derby County out of the competition, they faced a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United for a place in the Quarter Finals.
Torres played ninety minutes as his side were narrowly beaten by a goal by former England defender Wes Brown.
At the end of 2013/14 season Torres left Crawley to join National League South club Whitehawk and once again he found success in the FA Cup as the Hawks reached the Second Round of the competition in 2015.
Torres was appointed as Hawks club captain in 2015 and helped the club reach the National League South play-offs.
Now, after three seasons at the Enclosed Ground he has decided to join Eastbourne Borough, and his new manager is delighted to have him on board.
Jamie Howell told the Sports official website “I am really happy to announce the signing of Sergio for Eastbourne Borough. Sergio is a player I have admired for many years and he will bring a wealth of experience and quality to Eastbourne Borough. I am delighted he has committed himself to the club.”
