Godmanchester Rovers chief Chris Hyem is tipping Arran Mackay to be a big hit at Thurlow Nunn League title favourites Mildenhall.

The big striker agreed a move to the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division leaders last week and made his debut for them at the weekend.

Mackay has been a star performer for Rovers during a difficult season. He fired 16 goals in 21 appearances and also played as a defender on a handful of occasions early in the campaign. Ironically, his first Mildenhall appearance was also as a centre-back when they drew 1-1 at Saffron Walden.

Hyem said: “Arran has had plenty of offers during this season, but stayed with us. I can’t knock him for moving to a team who are top of the league and I’m sure he will be a great addition for Mildenhall.

“It’s always tough to lose one of your best players, but we wish him all the best.”
