Long-serving Sam leaves Diamonds
Long-serving defender Sam Brown has left AFC Rushden & Diamonds.
The club confirmed his departure today (Thursday) and he is now expected to sign for Southern League Premier Central rivals Banbury United after he featured in an inter-club friendly with the Puritans last weekend.
Brown was the longest-serving player at Diamonds, having been part of the team that played in their first senior match when they entered the United Counties League back in 2012.
The left-back made over 300 appearances for the club as he was a regular in their climb up the divisions but is now moving on after eight years with Diamonds.
In a brief statement, Diamonds said: “Long-serving defender, Sam, has left the club.
“We would like to wish him all the best for the future.”
