Following prolific marksman Justin Bennett out of Vanarama National League South club Gosport Borough is defender Sam Pearce and forward Dan Wooden.

It was agreed that Pearce would mutually agree to leave Privett Park, although it was a very tough decision to make.

A former Bristol City and Havant & Waterlooville youth player, Pearce moved into the Gosport Borough F.C. logofirst-team at Westleigh Park in 2004.

He left The Hawks to join Fleet Town and also spent time playing cricket in South Africa before joining Bognor Regis Town in 2008.

He had a spell at Salisbury City before returning to Havant, moving to Boro in the summer of 2014.

Wooden said his decision to leave was “the hardest decision I have had to make, but it`s time for a change.

“I`ve had some great times and some unbelievable experiences with some real close friends of mine which I will never forget.”Wooden was signed by Alex Pike at the age of 19 in the summer of 2009 from then Wessex Premier rivals Moneyfields.

After an injury hit start to his Gosport career, he has grown to become an established striker in a Boro shirt. Wooden has sometimes offered himself as an attacking midfielder meaning but it was as a striker though that he has produced his finest form for Boro.

His most important goal will undoubtedly be his superb volley away atStourbridge in the play-off semi-final which booked the club`s place in the Southern Premier play-off final.
