Clapton’s top goal scorer Jeffrey Cobblah has left the club to join high-flying Bostik North outfit Bowers & Pitsea.

The winger has been in prolific form for the Tons this campaign finding the net 20 times.

He will now be moving up to the Bostik North to help bolster Rob Small’s men push for promotion as they currently sit second in the table and 13 points behind leaders Hornchurch.

Cobblah scored in his last appearance for the Tons in their 3-2 victory away from home against FC Stansted last weekend.

The youngster joined Clapton in the summer after impressing at Jolof Sports in the Essex Alliance last term, where he scored 31 goals in 25 games.

Manager Jonny Fowell said: “Good luck to Jeff on joining Bowers & Pitsea another one off the Clapton production line.

“Well done and fully deserved all the best Jeff.”

He will now link-up with former Tons player Johnny Ashman, who is still dual registered with the Tons, and made a few appearances this term.
