Stowmarket Town can confirm the departure of Will Adams-Newton.

The 26-year-old has been a stalwart for the club’s reserves since arriving at Greens Meadow in 2015, racking up more than 150 appearances.

Adams-Newton was an ever present in the team’s Thurlow Nunn Reserve League title-winning season in 2018-19, starting in all 22 games and scoring eight times.

He also started for the Reserves in their Suffolk Senior Reserve Cup final win against Woodbridge Town Reserves, which was played at Colchester United, in 2017.

“It’s been a pleasure to play all of them games, win the league and come close in the cups and everything in-between,” Adams-Newton said.

“It’s been a good ride. I want to give first team football a go, as I’m 26 and not getting any younger.

“I wish I knew that was my last game when we played last so I could have said goodbye properly, but I’m sure I’ll be back down to visit the club at some point.”

Stow Reserves manager Craig Brown added: “I want to thank Will for his efforts while I’ve played alongside him and managed him.

“He played a big part in us winning the league a couple of years ago. I want to wish him all the best with his next club.”

  • Stowmarket Town Reserves ran out 1-0 winners in a friendly against Stanton on Saturday. Debutant Tarek Elomri grabbed the winner, while manager Craig Brown handed debuts to Tommy Allen, Sam Blewitt, Louis Hart and Elliot Hart in a young squad who all impressed.
