The club can confirm Dajon Golding will not be returning to Woodside Road next season.

The 24-year-old joined the Reds from Lewes in February 2020 and scored his first goal a week later in a 4-2 victory at home against Wingate & Finchley, in what turned out to be the final match before the season was declared null and void.

A member of our Isthmian League Premier Division title winning side, he made 42 league appearances last season, appearing in every game and scoring 8 goals, including a brace against his former side in the remarkable 5-4 league victory over the Rooks in October 2021.

Manager Adam Hinshelwood gave the following reaction: “Dajon was excellent for us on our way to becoming Champions, particularly the first part of the season.”

“We had an honest chat and I felt he needed to play regular games which I didn’t think I’d able to offer him going into the new season”.

“He is a great lad and I wish him all the best – we wont look forward to coming up against him if our paths cross moving forwards”.

Golding’s final appearance for the Reds was from the substitutes bench in the Sussex Senior Challenge Cup Final defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion at the start of May.

In total the powerful forward made 63 appearances for the Rebels scoring a total of 15 goals.

The club would like to thank Dajon and wish him well for the future.
