Midfielder Jake Flannigan has signed on loan from Havant & Waterlooville for the remainder of the season to bolster Bognor’s play-off ambitions.
Flannigan, who was a regular in Southampton’s Under-23s before being released by the Premier League club, picked up an injury during his initial one-month loan in the loss to Enfield.
The Rocks have yet to see the best of him after the hamstring injury curtailed his availability after he had figured in the 3-2 win over Brightlingsea Regent but manager Jack Pearce is hoping all that will change now.
Pearce said: “Jake was very unfortunate to get injured up at Enfield and it was a big blow because we were just starting to see all of the qualities that he undoubtedly possesses.
“It was an easy decision to take him for the rest of the season and, as ever, we thank Havant for all of their help.”
Rocks midfielder Ben Mendoza has joined Chi on a short-team loan.
Chi assistant manager Graham Gee told the club website: “We’re aware the amount of games we have left to play in a short space of time is likely to have an effect so we wanted to strengthen but they needed to be the right fit for this club.
“Ben falls into that category because he’s young, talented and hungry, plus he’s another local lad.”
