...players all the best following his sharp exit from the Seddon Stadium.
Tom Urwin, a former Stoke City trainee, played in Grove's goalless draw at Boston United in the FA Cup last Saturday, but had moved to Nantwich Town before Tuesday's Second Qualifying Round replay.
Manager Peter Ward, who recently signed Ashley Carter from the Dabbers said: "Nantwich had put in seven days' notice of approach for Tom, but we only talked about it after the game at Boston.
"Tom had the weekend to think about it and, while I am sorry to see him go, we would not stand in his way of bettering himself.
"He is a class act and I believe he will go on from Nantwich. He is only small, but is talented, quick, likes a tackle and works his socks off.
"Tom came to us last year and is a great lad who has been no trouble and has been an asset to the team. He has handled himself impeccably, so the door is always open."
Ward voted last Tuesday's heroics in seeing off Boston as the best performance in his time at the club.
Craig Dove and Sam Hall found the scoresheet in a 2-0 win to set up a home tie with Northamptonshire outfit Long Buckby in the next round.
He said: "I thought Boston were a little disrespectful towards us and seemed to think the result was a formality.
"But we were much the better side and could have won by more. I felt we were comfortable."
