Has Billy burned his bridges at the Pan?

IT would appear Billy Medlock may have played his last game for Lewes.

Sport Express understands his decision to play for Eastbourne Borough in the Sussex Senior Cup against Crawley Down – instead of the Rooks in their crunch Ryman Premier midweek clash against Leatherhead on the same night (March 21) – did not go down well with the Rooks management.

It was felt by the Lewes management that if Medlock was to earn himself a first team place at the Dripping Pan outfit he ought to have committed himself to turning out for the Rooks against the Tanners instead of apparently trying to impress the new management team of Tommy Widdrington and Alan Kimble at his Priory Lane parent club.

Medlock was signed on a dual registration so was eligible to play for either club. But if he has burned his bridges at Lewes, it would seem Medlock’s decision to play for Borough that night was a doubly painful one – as the Sports suffered an embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Ryman 1 South side Crawley Down.
