Leading scorer Jason Prior has left Bognor.

The 45-goal marksman has joined Havant and Waterlooville who play play alongside Bognor in Ryman premier next season following relegation from National League south.

Prior, who was captain, has scored 153 goals in 210 games for the Rocks, who he first joined in 2009.

After netting 95 goals in 126 league appearances, he earned a move to League Two AFC Wimbledon in 2012 but suffered a broken leg at Crawley Town after just nine games and that effectively his time with the club.

He returned to Bognor in 2014, initially on loan from Margate, before making the move permanent last summer.

His departure comes hot on the heels of news that Bognor defender Craig Robson has signed for Dagenham and Redbridge, who were relegated from League Two at the end of the season.

Prior tweeted: “Thanks to everyone at @rocks1883 for last season, especially Jamie, Dabba and the players. It was a pleasure as always. All the best.”
