Worthing snap up Tanners talent

Seager moves down the A24 as he leaves Leatherhead for the Mackerel Men

Yesterday morning Leatherhead admitted defeat in their efforts to retain the services of defender Will Seager, and by the evening we'd found out why, as he was unveiled as a new arrival for Pitching In Isthmian Premier favourites Worthing.

Mackerel Men boss Adam Hinshelwood explained:

“He’s the best young defender we’ve come up against in this league. He’ll be a big asset for us, he suits the way we play with his ability on the ball and his versatility means he can cover a few positions if necessary."

Will made twelve appearances for the Tanners last season, to add to thirty three during 2019-20, thirty five during 2018-19 and four, including his debut, in 2017-18. Writing on social media, he said his goodbyes to the club:

'I just wanna say a massive thank you to everyone at Leatherhead FC. Thank you for all the support, such a lovely family at the club.

It’s been a great experience over the last few years. Good luck to you all next season.

Up the Tanners.'
