Heanor Town FC striker Gary Ricketts has left the club to join Mickleover Sports.

Ricketts has been a hugely influential player for Heanor having bagged 15 goals for the club.

His first goal came against Albion Sports FC on the opening day of the season and his last coming against Deeping Rangers FC in the FA Vase on 6th December.

With Ricketts, Wells and Grantham all leaving the club since the turn of the year it leaves Sam Jones as the club’s current serving top scorer with six goals and Town needed to find further goals

Ricketts has turned down offers from other step five clubs to join Sports, who are step 4 and involved in their own hunt for promotion.
