Kenny Pogue has departed Hastings United and rejoined former club Eastbourne Town.

The striker returned to The Pilot Field from Town in September and scored nine goals for the U’s, including a memorable hat-trick against Guernsey in October.

Pogue has found his opportunities limited lately, though, having only started three of United’s last nine Ryman Football League Division One South games.

The 27-year-old came on as a substitute in United’s most recent two matches, including last weekend’s narrow defeat at Folkestone Invicta.

Pogue scored for Town in their 5-1 victory away to St Francis Rangers in Macron Store Sussex County Football League Division One last night (Wednesday).

United manager Nigel Kane, meanwhile, has issued seven-day approaches for three players. One of them is ex-U’s midfielder Tom O’Connor (now at East Grinstead Town), and the other two are an un-named striker and a wide left player.
