Jared Lewington says it was a hard decision to leave Buckland Athletic but the chance to play in the Southern League with Tiverton Town was one he could not turn down.

Lewington scored his final goal for Buckland – his 15th of the season – when the Western League Premier Division side beat Chipping Sodbury Town 2-1 on Saturday. The 23-year-old striker was brought down in the box and scored the penalty himself.

Having made one appearance for Tiverton in the Southern Premier already – on a day when Buckland weren’t playing – the move became permanent on Sunday.

Lewington said: “It was a hard decision to leave Buckland as it is an extremely good club and environment to play in. However, I want to push on and improve as a player, and I believe I will be able to do that at Tiverton with the quality they have got.

“I am really looking forward to getting started and starting a new challenge.”
