PLAYMAKER Tommy English has left Mildenhall Town FC to join Haverhill Rovers in a move which is in the best interests of both player and club.

Mildenhall manager Trevor Munns said: "Haverhill offered us a good amount of money and we would have been silly not to accept."

English, who lives away from Mildenhall, was having trouble commuting to games, and the Haverhill move will be convenient for him.

Munns said: "Tommy had to travel a lot to play for us and while he was willing to do it, it seemed fairer to arrange this deal. It's the best for both of us."

Mildenhall have also recently appointed ex-Cambridge United professional Franco Nacca as first team coach.

Nacca, who has a UEFA B-Coaching Licence, is a worthy addition to the club and Munns is delighted at his arrival.

Munns said: "We're really pleased to have Franco on board.

"He's a great coach and I'm sure he'll do well here.
