Horsham midfielder departs

TOMMY Youle has been allowed to leave Horsham to join Ryman League One side Merstham.

The midfielder has slipped down the pecking order in recent weeks with Hornets boss Hugo Langton bringing in a number of new faces to try and steer the club away from the foot of the Ryman Premier table.

The former Horsham YMCA player made 23 appearances for Horsham after joining at the beginning of the season, but missed out on a place in the squad for Saturday’s 4-1 defeat against Leatherhead.

Langton told the club’s official website: “Tommy is a great lad and there’s no bad blood or ill feeling on either side.

“Unfortunately I can’t guarantee him a place in the squad so his chances for regular football are going to become limited for him here.

“I hope he will be a great success at Merstham and wish him all the best for the future.”
