Rocks’ fading playoff hopes have received a boost with the news Theo Widdrington has extended his loan until the end of the season.
The hard-working midfielder has become a fan favourite since joining on a temporary basis from Bristol Rovers.
His tough tackling and energy from the centre of the park has pushed the Rocks on since making his debut in the 2-0 away win at Worthing just before Christmas.
After returning from injury last month, the 19-year-old has continued his fine form for the Rocks – which is why large sections of the Nye Camp will be pleased to hear he has put pen to paper to extend loan deal from the League One side
Widdrington, who joined Rovers from Portsmouth last summer, couldn’t help the Nyewood Lane outfit from slipping to a disappointing 1-0 defeat at Margate on Saturday.
But Pearce and coach Robbie Blake hope he can help Bognor get back on track when they travel to Enfield Town tomorrow.
Pearce said: “Theo has come in and done ever so well for us and we are delighted to be able to secure his services for the rest of the season.”
