VIDEO: Rocks goal hero Pearce on the play-off triumph

Ollie Pearce was Bognor’s play-off goal hero - scoring twice in the semi-final against Wingate and weighing in with another to set up the final win over Dulwich Hamlet.

The striker is one of the club’s longest-serving players and was quick to say it was all about the whole squad as they celebrated promotion to National League South.

Pearce recalled days when Bognor were content to finish 14th in the league - a far cry from recent seasons when they have been challenging at the top every year.
