I see Hemel have also signed the ex Kings Langley FC and Berkhamsted FC striker Matt Bateman and the ex Leverstock Green FC striker Johnathan Lacey.

Savagebee - Yes, that's right, Bateman was also at Pancake Lane and in his short time there during the 2017/18 campaign netted 17 goals in 18 league appearances before moving to Berkhamsted and after starting that season at Kings Langley, he was also at Leighton Town briefly during the 2016/17 season playing 12 games and was at Berkhamsted whilst they were still a SSML Club helping them to promotion to the Southern League in 2017/18:

It’s true, Webby’s gone. However, as gutted as I may be that he’s gone, it’s a wonderful opportunity for him and he deserves it. 42 goals in 44 games. Unbelievable.

its also a massive credit to the club, to have a player move 3 steps higher. I wish him all the best and massively proud and happy for him.

AlwaysLeighton - How do you think Joes feels about losing Webby, it's a big body blow to him isn't it, hopefully he will come on here later to tell us and also how he plans to replace him at Bell Close but I wouldn't mind betting that he says exactly the same as you that it’s a wonderful opportunity for Webby at Hemel Hempstead Town:

Webb was always going to attract interest from other clubs so I'm not really surprised that he has left the club. 42 goals and there was still two months of the season left to play 😲.

Webb will be hard to replace that's for sure.

How long was Webb at Leighton and where had he played before?

I think last season was his first season at Leighton Town FC? He's played for Potton United FC.

Last season was Webby’s first and only season at Bell Close. Considering he only had about 4 goals at the start of October, he’s been absolutely unbelievable. If he had taken early chances in the season, coupled with the 18 games we had left that of course we didn’t play, he would’ve got easily 60, maybe even 70 goals. A serious talent and deserves his opportunity at Step 2! 

Joe was the one who broke the news of him leaving on Twitter and I know he feels the same way. Whilst gutted to have him and his goals now leaving our squad, it’s a proud moment for him and the rest of the club, to have a player move 3 levels higher! 

He will be hard to replace, but I’m 100% sure there’s new players in the pipeline...

Any SSML strikers you would like to see replacing Webb at Leighton next season?

So was he playing well below his level or did the club transform him in the short time he was there?

No, he was a real danger at Potton last season when I originally take notice of him. However, when we put him through the middle, he became a different player in my opinion and was unplayable every week!

Did he sign as a wide player then?

It’s a hell of a jump in levels, will be interested to see how he gets on, that scoring record bodes well though. Looks like they’ve signed a few lads from steps below.

Smart move putting him through the middle then. That ratio is up their with the best I can think of in recent years.

Not SSML but over 100 photographs from Leighton Town v Slough Town, at Bell Close on 2 November 2013, in a Southern League Division One Central fixture from 2013/14, Leighton Town won 1-0 with former Slough Town player Dom Marsala netting on 87 minutes:

Over 100 photographs from Slough Town v Leighton Town on 22 March 2014, in a Southern League Division One Central fixture from 2013/14, Slough Town gained sweet revenge for their 1-0 defeat at Bell Close earlier in the campaign with a 4-1 win with Kieran Doughty scoring first for Leighton Town:

Over 100 photographs from Leighton Town v Slough Town, at Bell Close on 29 October 2011, in a Southern League Division One Central fixture from 2011/12, Slough Town won 1-0 with a goal shortly after the break however Ben Gallant then disappointingly missed a penalty for the hosts when enjoying the lions share of the play and they may well have gone on to win had the spot kick been converted:

I’m interested as to what people think about Non-League Twitter, specifically in the Spartan. 

I think Leighton’s account is pretty good, the live match updates are always spot on and when the season’s on, lots of good stuff on there.

Leighton’s is very good, on the whole is say the accounts aren’t great, many only post something if they win, lots don’t even bother with match update. There are a few good accounts though.

WinslowBoy - I agree, I really like the stuff Leighton put out on Twitter, it always seems to be on the ball and interesting! 

I think a social media account can help a club, gives them a platform to attract fans and people in general like groundhoppers etc. It’s a shame that some of them don’t keep them updated. Leighton’s has really taken a massive turn for the better in the last 18 months!

Over 100 photographs from Slough Town v Leighton Town at Holloways Park on 21 April 2012, in a Southern League Division One Central fixture from 2011/12, Leighton Town won 3-0 with second half goals from Ross Hanley, Ben Gallant and Leon Simpson. The result scuppered Slough Town's chances of the Championship and they finished second to St Neots Town, failing in the play offs in a hard fought Semi Final against their landlords Beaconsfield SYCOB after extra time:
