Hunty’s thanks at fans’ generosity
Injured midfielder acknowledges support of fans
He won a league championship medal in his first season but, some three and a half injury-hit years after joining the club from Pagham, Adam Hunt has decided to call time on his Hornets career. Hunty was an integral part of the Horsham side that won the Southern Combination Premier League title in 2016, playing thirty-nine times and going on to become a terrace favourite, but two serious injuries have limited his appearances to just twenty in the last two years and, despite turning out for Horsham YMCA this season in a bid to get back to full fitness, the versatile midfielder has finally admitted defeat. Announcing the news on Twitter, Adam thanked the club’s supporters and wished the team well in its bid for promotion.
“Its very sad that Hunty’s leaving us” admitted Dom Di Paola. “He’s been with me for years and was one of the few players left from those County League days. But he’s realistic. We had a chat this week and the level we’re at now means it’s unlikely that he’ll get much game time with us. I feel for him because he’s been really unlucky with injuries over the last couple of seasons and I wish him all the best because he’s a great lad.”
