Bexhill United Football Club manager Marc Munday has acted swiftly to replace the departed Chris Cumming-Bart.
In-form attacking midfielder Cumming-Bart joined Hastings United on a dual registration basis late last week, but Munday has since signed Danny Ellis and issued a seven-day approach for Jordan Woodley.

He said: “Chris Cumming-Bart’s gone to Hastings and we wish him all the best there. He’s used us a stepping stone to get to where I believe he should be playing. I believe he’s got the ability to play higher.
“Obviously the door’s always open for him to come back, but I’m pleased he’s got his opportunity and hopefully he can take it.
“It’s a big thing for us to lose a player like that, but we’re looking to add. We’ve lost a great player, but we’re replacing him with great players.”
Cumming-Bart, who scored four goals for Bexhill in the first month of the season, came on as a first half substitute for Hastings on Saturday but was an unused substitute on Tuesday night.
Ellis and Woodley - two skilful attacking players - have both played for Hastings in the past. Ellis hasn’t played at all this season, while Woodley has scored twice for Ringmer.
