Weston-super-Mare AFC can confirm that Sam Hendy has departed for Melksham Town with Lewis Hall also leaving the club.
Sam signed for the club in the summer of 2019, while Lewis joined in March 2020 just before the first Covid lockdown.
On the two departures, Manager Scott Bartlett said:
Sam has been with me for a long time and is a pleasure to work with and someone I have a lot of time for, he was a popular member of our squad.
“We had initially agreed he would stay for this season and that he would go out on loan if he wasn’t starting regularly but due to Covid, he’s missed an awful lot of football in his young career and he’s been guaranteed to play and offered a good deal at Melksham so we couldn’t stand in his way.
“Ideally, we would have agreed a longer contract and a loan if it came to that but it wasn’t to be. He will always be welcome back.
“Lewis has decided to look at other options, we invited him back for pre-season but he has something more concrete on the table which I respect.
“I’d like to thank them for their efforts with us and wish them both good luck at their new clubs.”
Everyone at the club wishes Sam and Lewis the best of luck for the future.
