AFC Sudbury have made Brightlingsea Regent attacking midfielder Ollie Canfer their first signing of the summer.

Canfer, a former Hadleigh United player, scored 16 goals in all competitions last season as the Essex team narrowly missed out on a place in the Ryman League Division One North play-offs.

Manager Jamie Godbold is planning his first full campaign at AFC, having joined midway through last season and guiding them to the play-off semi-finals.

The former Kirkley & Pakefield boss has transfer-listed goalkeeper Alex Archer and forward Kris Newby.

Meanwhile, Braintree Town boss Danny Cowley has signed former Chelmsford City striker Michael Cheek.
