Midfielder Bedsente Gomis has left Gander Green Lane after agreeing a two year deal with Vanarama National League club Barrow. He joined Sutton early in the 2014-15 season, winning the Supporters' Club Player of the Year award in his first season (pictured below receiving the award) and made 129 appearances for the club, scoring 15 goals.
Manager Paul Doswell was as surprised as anyone having agreed a new two year deal with Bedsi.
"I received a call from Bedsi telling me he had received a fantastic offer from Barrow and he wished to take up the opportunity, despite verbally agreeing a new two year contract with Sutton. Whilst disappointed, we never stand in any player's way and genuinely wish him well with his new opportunity. Bedsi has been a real pleasure to manage and another who has flourished at the club. He was a consistent performer for us and I know he leaves with a heavy heart, but the chance to make his family financially better off was the deciding factor and one we respect.
We are determined to keep living within our means as a club, and have to accept that players will move for footballing and financial reasons.We have identified a replacement and will announce this hopefully on Thursday when the players return for pre season training."
