Test particle orbits in the two-dimensional Fadeev equilibrium with a perpendicular electric field added are analyzed to show that impulsive bursty reconnection, which has been proposed as a model for fragmentary energy release in solar flares, may account also for particle acceleration to (near) relativistic energies within a fraction of a second. The convective electric field connected with magnetic island dynamics can play an important role in the acceleration process.
