This one nipped past us, but Adam Cornell is back in senior football with North Hampshire side Hartley Wintney.

The former Bracknell Town striker signed for the BetVictor Southern League Premier Division South side at the start of October having not played since departing the Robins after the play off final defeat to Cheshunt in May.

Arguably his most important goal of the three was Tuesday night when he scored the only goal of the game as The Row beat Poole Town 1-0 in the FA Trophy.

The striker was a popular figure at Larges Lane scoring 24 goals during the Robins first season back at step 4 as well as 104 over three seasons with the club in the Uhlsport Hellenic League.

A comment from manager Anthony Millerick in a club announcement posted on 9th October on the Hartley Wintney website said: “32 year old Adam has been in and around the level for a number of years and his experience and know-how will be vital as we look to balance the squad.”

The youngster made four appearances for the Bracknell first team in 2014/15 before signing a professional contract with Scunthorpe United.
