Sittingbourne defender Aaron Gough has been forced to quit the club – because his dad can’t give him a lift to the ground any more.
But the Brickies were set to land a replacement, with Ollie Gray poised to sign from Ramsgate.
Gough, pictured, had been travelling from his home in Sutton with dad Perry, who worked as first-team coach at Bourne Park before accepting a job with Chelsea. But the player doesn’t drive so Sittingbourne have reluctantly agreed to let him go.
Joint-boss Jim Ward said: "It’s a major loss because Aaron is a good player and he would only have got better by working with me and Danny (Ward, joint-boss)."
Gray is a player Ward knows well from his time in charge at Ramsgate and he was only too pleased to offer the versatile defender a chance after he fell out of favour at Southwood.
"In Ollie you get a good defender who can play centre-half or right-back and he’s also a nice lad. He knows he’ll have to fight for a shirt but he’ll be a good signing for us."
Brickies are without a game this weekend. They return to action with the visit of Tooting & Mitcham on November 17.
