Top scorer Nick Guest has left Hemsworth MW to join their NCE League Premier Division rivals AFC Mansfield for next season.
In two spells at the club Guest has proved a popular player and a prolific goal scorer. He netted 19 times last season and played a big part in Wells’ promotion campaign in Division One the previous season and in the team’s progression in recent years.
Hemsworth begin pre-season training on Thursday, June 22. Preparations for what promises to be another exciting season are also beginning to take shape with the club announcing their warm-up matches.
