Despite offering Omar Sowunmi a new deal at the conclusion of the 2022/23 season, we can confirm that the defender has decided to depart Hayes Lane and will join Sky Bet League Two side Sutton United.
The 27-year-old signed for the club in August 2021 and made 38 league appearances last season, scoring on eight occasions.
Sowunmi, who has spent the majority of his career in the EFL, was part of our FA Trophy winning side of 2022 and ended the most recent campaign with the Players’ Player and Manager’s Player of the Season awards.
Speaking after the move, Assistant Manager Alan Dunne said: “I was fortunate enough to work with Omar closely. We knew straight away that he had the attributes to go straight back into the EFL.
“He’s had a phenomenal season for us and he was a pleasure to work with. I’d like to wish him all the success for the future.”
We thank Omar for his service and wish him all the best for the future.
