Kempston Rovers have announced that Tom Guiney has left the Evo-Stik League South East club.

Guiney skippered the Walnut Boys to the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division title and promotion in 2015/16.

However, he has now left Hillgrounds and has signed for Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division side Leighton Town.

But Guiney said: “It is with an extremely heavy heart and in communication with Jimmy Stoyles and Gary Flinn that I have decided to move on from the football club and join Leighton.

“It has been an incredible journey which was topped off with winning the UCL Premier, breaking the UCL record for the longest unbeaten run from August 2015 to March 2016, and gaining promotion into the Southern League for the first time in the club`s history, missing out on the play-offs by one point last season.

“I would like to thank Jimmy and Gary for making me club captain and instilling their trust in me over the years, the amazing fans who are the best in the league bar none, the committee and all the volunteers whose work goes under the radar. Without these, there would be no club.

“Lastly I would like to thank the players. They are a fantastic bunch and is without doubt the best changing room I have been a part of.

“It has been an absolute privilege and honour to not only play for the club, but also captain the side and memories made will last a lifetime.

“I wish the club every success in the future and I am confident the team can go better than last year and reach the play-offs”.
