Chapman said “I’m delighted to announce the signings of Josh and Tommy, both players have great quality and are really good additions to Burgess Hill Town FC.

“Firstly Josh can play on either wing or at the top of midfield, and whilst I didn’t see a lot of him last season, the season before in my opinion he was the best player in the league and will give us something different going forward. He also has great delivery and scores goals.”

“I worked with Tom and Josh when they were 12 at Brighton and Hove Albion for 2 years so I know them both very well.

“In Tom I also worked with him for a year and half when I was first team coach at the Albion and again he is very versatile. If he’s enjoying his football and playing well we could have the best player in the league at our Football Club.

“Both players had offers to go to other clubs but understood what we are trying to achieve here and wanted to be a part of it, again it shows me the progress our club is making.

“With all the squad from last season coming back we probably may look for just one maybe two new signings from lads on trial with us when pre-season begins this Tuesday.”

Dead-ball specialist Jones joins the Hillians from Peacehaven where he was a member of their double winning Ryman South and Sussex Senior Cup side of two seasons ago. He has previously been with Whitehawk and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Midfielder Fraser played over 100 games for Brighton& Hove Albion and has also played for Port Vale where he was Club Captain for two seasons at the age of just 21.

The 28 year old has also played for Barnet, Bognor, Whitehawk, Ebbsfleet United, Peacehaven and Lewes.
