Soham Town Rangers striker Sam Mulready switches to Dereham Town

Soham Town Rangers have suffered their second big name departure of the summer.

Earlier this month it was announced that captain and goalkeeper Josh Pope had left the club, opting to return to his former side Mildenhall Town following the Greens' lateral league switch.

And now it has been confirmed that main marksman Sam Mulready has also headed through the Julius Martin Lane exit door.

The forward has instead opted to remain in the Isthmian League North Division with Dereham Town.

Mulready, who scored a number of goals during his two spells with Soham, has signed a one-year deal at Aldiss Park, with the option of a further 12 months.

He wrote on Twitter: "Massive thanks to everybody involved at the club @SohamTownRanger but I’ve decided to move on for personal reasons.

"Enjoyed every minute at such a great club with amazing people throughout. I wish you all the success in the future."

Meanwhile, Dereham boss Adam Gusterson told the club's website: "Sam is a player we have been after for a few seasons, so naturally we are delighted to finally get him across to us.

"His goalscoring record at this level speaks for itself and I have no doubt that he will continue that in a Dereham shirt.

"Sam had some good offers from elsewhere, so it is very pleasing that he has seen the potential here and sees us as a good fit for him."
