Burgess Hill Town have announced the signing of two new midfielders.

The first addition to Simon Wormull’s squad is O’Shaye Giraud-Hutchinson.

The attacking midfielder joins the Hillians from East Grinstead Town – for who he netted twice for when the two sides met in the Velocity Trophy back in September.

O’Shaye came through the youth ranks at Charlton Athletic and Sheffield United.

The second new addition is no stranger to Hillians supporters.

Scott Kirkwood joins the club from Isthmian League Premier Division outfit, Horsham. The central midfielder was an integral part of the Hillians’ 2014-15 Isthmian League Division One South promotion winning side.

Wormull said: "O’Shaye is an exciting young player who i have admired for some time.

"His performance against us in the velocity trophy made up my mind that he will be a good addition to our squad.

"Scott has the experience we need in the middle of the park. We have good young players who will benefit from having him around

Both will be available for Saturday’s FA Trophy fixture with Phoenix Sports.
