Tommy Fraser has re-signed for Burgess Hill Town.

Manager Ian Chapman is delighted at the capture of the experienced midfielder and has made him team captain - taking over from the departed Darren Budd.

The 28-year-old finished last season at Whitehawk after starting the season at the Green Elephants Stadium.

But Chapman believes the former Port Vale captain is ready for a new start - as is the club as a whole.

Chapman said: “He was with us at the start of last season. I think he is in a better place than when he came here a year ago. I feel he is a big signing for us and I want him to be a massive part of us going forward.

“I didn’t want to change much last year because we had such an unbelievable season the year before.

“But we have now drawn a line through the last two seasons and we have got to start again.”
