In what was to be his final appearance for the club, Eyüphan Toga slams the ball home to double our lead against Vines Cross yesterday.

In a surprise move this lunchtime, Brook Street parted company with striker Eyüphan Toga in a deal which saw the club’s top earner move to Bosnian side Tops & Nai.

Reporting the sale, Kyle Fair said, “We will no doubt receive criticism for selling what many fans will see as our ‘best player’, but when faced with a very high wage bill and a depreciating asset, we had to weigh up the pros and cons and it made the most sense to get the best return we could”.

He continued, “It will free up a sizeable sum from the weekly wage bill which can be used for building the team, whilst giving our young players the chance to break through into the first team”.

Echoing the sentiment, Marcus Lövman said, “Eyüphan has been a tremendous player for us, but it was clear his future lay away from here. We’d been in discussions for some time as it’s important to move our older players on at a time when our younger players are coming through. Freeing up a large proportion of our weekly wage bill will allow us to strengthen in other areas of the team too so the move made sense”.

He concluded, “Eyüphan leaves with our very best wishes and thanks”.

During his spell at the club, Eyüphan made 45 appearances in total, scoring a remarkable 27 goals in the process.
