Former Brighton youth Overton joins the Hill from Worthing where he has made 30 appearances scoring eight goals for the Rebels this season.

Richmond joins from Ryman Premier League leaders Hampton & Richmond Borough.

He has made one appearance for them this season before a loan spell with Walton & Hersham.

Overton was Hampton’s young player of the year last season.

Chapman revealed; “With us picking up a few injuries of late it was important to add a couple of players to the squad, both are keen and willing to work hard and both will be getting a chance over the remaining games.”

Toby Pointing will be out for the rest of the season after his injury last week.
