MICK Woodham has confirmed that Carl Dennison has left Windsor and will start the new season with Ascot United.

Dennison, 28, was club captain last season and made 93 appearances for Windsor keeping 24 clean sheets.

Woodham hailed his ex-keeper as a wonderful servant to the club before confirming Hugo Sobte as his new number one, with Luke Brooks-Smith taking over the captain’s armband.

“Carl has gone, that’s a fact, and good luck to him,” Woodham told the Observer. “We can’t offer the sort of money Ascot have, we don’t offer any money just waffles and beans, and he got sick of it.

“Carl going to do well wherever he goes and he will be sorely missed here on and off the pitch.

“If anything goes wrong where he is I will go and pick him up and get him back.

“As much as we’re going to miss Carl as a character and his qualities, I’m not losing any sleep over it. That’s not being detrimental to him but it’s a fact and Hugo has done nothing wrong.

“Hugo has got the number one shirt and we will run with one of the guys you saw against Flackwell Heath on Tuesday.”

Woodham also moved to rubbish rumours of a potential return to Windsor for a number of ex-players, including Rob Lazarczuk, George Gould and Kane Jones.

He stressed: “I don’t do Facebook or Twitter, but if someone picks the phone up I will have a conversation with them.

“At the moment Rob is on holiday, unless George is cutting the grass I don’t know where he is, and Kane actually needs to do some kind of training.

“They can all talk, everyone is great at talking, but it’s a lot harder when they actually put their words into action.

“The boys out there on Tuesday need to be applauded for it because they did just that, so I’m only really interested in those that are hear here at the moment.

“All these boys that are putting their names about need to do something about it”
