Burgess Hill Town boss Ian Chapman thought he had made two signings this week, but a ‘done deal’ for Ollie Rowe is now ‘up in the air’.
The Hillians published on their website Hastings skipper Rowe had aggree terms with the club last week.
But since then Rowe has got a new job in Canterbury and the deal is now on hold.
At the same time, Hastings United had denied their skipper had left.
Chapman oild Middy Sport: “Ollie was going to come to us but he has got a new job and it’s takes him right down to Canterbury, so I am going to have to speak to him next week as he is away now.
“I agreed everything with him but unfortunately where his job has taken him is two hours away and he’s a bit worried about the logistics of the trip.
“It was a done deal but then he got the job. He didn’t think he would get it, then he got it!
“He’s away for a week now, and then I need to have a look it. It’s a bit on awkward one really.
“It’s up in the air now.”
But one signing which is confirmed is Jack Brivio from Tonbridge Angels.
Chapman said: “He’s a midfield player who wass injured for quite a bit of last season with a cruciate, he came back towards the end of it.
“He’s a decent lad who’s a nice size - 6ft. It’s a bit more size which is what we need in there.
“And we are still looking at other players to sign on.
“I have got two or three who I am awaiting decisions from so hoping to have those in the next couple of days.”
