In what is a bitter-sweet moment for the Magpies, the Club can formally confirm that young defender Joel Colbran has signed for Bostik Premier Division side, Worthing FC.
Whilst all are saddened to lose such a talented player, everyone understands the opportunity that is there for Joel and takes pride in the fact that the quality of our investment in developing young players has the ability to give them a very realistic chance of progressing in the game.
Joel has made no secret of his affection for Loxwood FC and his actions this season have proven that he would never make a move just for the sake of it. As such he will remain signed with the Club and knows that the door is always open to a player who's conduct around this whole matter has been exemplary and should serve as an example to all involved in whatever level of football.
All are very proud of his development both as a player and as a young man and he goes forth with everyone's best wishes.
