Bognor Regis Town keeper Dan Lincoln has not returned for pre-season training but Robbie Blake revealed that the club are still trying to persuade the player to rejoin the Nyewood Lane-outfit.

Lincoln joined the Rocks from Reading in 2016 and picked up the Player of the Season Award in his first season at Bognor.

The 24-year-old was also part of the Bognor Regis side that won their first Sussex Senior Cup in 32 years following a 2-1 win in extra-time against Burgess Hill Town last May.

Blake said: “At the minute Dan hasn’t been training with us so that’s a position we need to sort out.

“I think Jack (Pearce, Rocks boss) is speaking to a few people including Dan so we’ll know more within a few days.”

Blake also hinted that the Rocks are still on the hunt for new players, although at this moment in time they had nothing ‘concrete’.

He added: “We haven’t got any more set in concrete. But we do have a few irons in the fire that we need to be sorted.

“I’m sure over the coming days or maybe in a week they will get sorted and I’m sure we will have a couple more to announce.”
