Sam Heathcote departs West

Our men’s side are back in training ahead of our return to the NWCFL Premier Division, and we will soon have news of retained players and new faces as the season approaches.

Sam Heathcote, however, will be leaving for pastures new having accepted an offer from another club.

Heathcote joined West in December 2019 and made 64 appearances, scoring 37 goals.

Manager Chris Rowley said: “Sam has been great for me since I came to West. He has developed into a real leader on and off the pitch. As a manager I’m gutted he is going, but also proud that we have been able to be a part of his journey back up the football pyramid. I wish him the very best as I know he can go on to so much more in football in the future.”

We begin our pre-season schedule at home to Altrincham on Saturday, 9th July, with kick-off at 12 noon.
