Lewes rivals Eastbourne Borough have signed Brighton and Hove Albion reserve goalkeeper Mitch Walker on loan for the rest of the season after it appears that Rikki Banks has fallen out of favour with the new Eastbourne gaffer.
It is well known that Banks is determined to play his football at the Dripping Pan where he is a fans favourite having won the fans player of the year award in the Conference Premier season. Rikki Banks was deemed responsible for the defeat to Staines having fumbled the ball allowing Staines to score the only goal of the game leaving Eastbourne two points into the relegation zone which would see them relegated to the Ryman Premier where Lewes currently reside in 7th position.
Mitch Walker comes in with other loanee Connor Gough due to return to Charlton Athletic later this week and so Walker could just be coming in to replace him as back up although the rumours are flying that with Eastbourne now having four goalkeepers available, that Banks may soon have his wish granted and make a return to Lewes for the third time.
Walker has joined until the end of the season in a bid to gain some first team experience as he is currently only the fith choice keeper at the Amex.
