Burgess Hill Town defender Gary Charman has left the club to rejoin former club, and Bostik Premier rivals, Bognor Regis Town.

Charman has returned to the Nyewood Lane-outfit for a third spell, following his release by the Hillians. The central defender has now recovered from an injury which has kept him out of the Burgess Hill team for the past month and will be in the squad for Bognor’s league match at Harlow Town.

Charman left the Rocks to join former Bognor boss Jamie Howell at Eastbourne Borough then switched to join the Hillians before agreeing to return to the Rocks for a third time.

Bognor Regis Town boss Jack Pearce said: "We know all about Gary's strengths and, of course, he knows all about the club, our principles and the manner in which we like to play the game. So, in many ways it is a perfect fit.

"With Keaton Wood and Corey Heath out injured, we need cover at the back and Gary will come in and offer that.

"Not only does he provide experience and influence with his knowledge of how to defend, but also has leadership qualities which is always a hugely positive asset. And he also has a good presence in the dressing room."
