Daventry Town boss Allan Smart is on the lookout for a new striker after conceding that Tommy Berwick will leave the club.

Berwick is set to move to Souther League Division One Central rivals Rugby Town, leaving Daventry, who lost 1-0 at St Ives Town last weekend, in need of a new frontman.

And ahead of Saturday’s home clash with AFC Hayes, Smart said: “We will dust ourselves down and go again, next Saturday is where our focus is now.

“Tommy Berwick will probably move on to Rugby Town. He has worked well and been committed to the cause since I joined the club so I would like to wish him well and every success should he decide to go.

“We are now going to be actively looking for a striker and are currently speaking to a couple of potential targets.”
