Prior’s arrival follows the return of Harry Crawford to Barnet
last week after a month on loan. Such is the fixture congestion for
Tony Burman’s side he could play as many as 10 league games during
his stay in north Kent.
Having played for Newbury and Moneyfields earlier in his career,
Prior made a name for himself at Bognor Regis Town, where he scored
95 goals in 121 appearances.
During his time with the Rocks he hit a hat-trick against
Dartford and his form for the West Sussex club earned him a trial
at Newcastle United, before he eventually joined Wimbledon on a
two-and-a half-year deal.
