Evo-Stik League South promotion-chasers Basford United have signed midfielder Fernando Bell-Toxtle from Evo-Stik League South East side AFC Rushden & Diamonds.
Bell-Toxtle joined Diamonds in the summer following his release from the Cambridge United academy. However, since the summer he has moved to Nottingham to attend university and has found the distance to be a struggle alongside his studies.
Diamonds manager Andy Peaks told his club`s official website: “It is a real shame to lose Fernando, I feel he has just started to break into the starting eleven. I know he and his family love the club but the distance following his re-location has made it very difficult for him. He knows the door is always open to him should it not work out”.
