Striker Dan Gilchrist has completed a move from AFC Sudbury to higher-league Brightlingsea Regent.

Sudbury announced over the weekend that the summer signing had been allowed to leave the club in search of regular first-team football.

Gilchrist made a total of 13 appearances for the Yellows – scoring three goals – this term, but many of those came from the substitute's bench.

The former Stanway Rovers frontman is the first signing of new Brightlingsea manager Brett Munyard's tenure.
