Winger Jono Gould has revealed his decision to leave Chasetown FC for Bedworth was not an easy choice.

He has been with The Scholars since he was 16 and said it was a wrench to depart.

“Spending seven great years at Chasetown has made it a very difficult decision for me to move on,” he said. “I’m proud to have experienced the special atmosphere and friendliness that exists at the club.

“I’d like to thank everyone for their support over the years, whether that is the fans, officials or management staff who have been there with me since I was 16.

“I wish the club all the best for the rest of this season and future years.”

Gould came through the scholarship scheme at Chasetown, making his debut after coming on as a substitute at home to Rocester in the 2012/2013 season.

But he revealed that the chance to play at a higher level was not one he could pass up.

“I felt the chance to play under someone I’ve worked with before in Andy Penny in a division above was too much of an opportunity to turn down,” Gould said.

“Hopefully I will be able to play at a new level of football and take on a new challenge.”
