Hemel Hempstead Town snap up Adam Cunnington and James Scott from Dartford and Tonbridge Angels

Wednesday 09th October 2019

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD Town manager Sammy Moore has appointed James Scott as his opposition analyst  - a day after he left a coaching role at their Vanarama National League South rivals Tonbridge Angels.

Tonbridge Angels boss Steve McKimm told www.tonbridgeangels.co.uk: “I would like to thank James for all his efforts while here, in particular the support he provided during our run in for promotion.  I wish him all the very best for the future.”

Scott arrived at Longmead Stadium in December 2018 from Combined Counties League club Balham and had also spent time in the youth set-up at Crystal Palace.

Scott performed an analyst role alongside Moore and Jack Midson at AFC Wimbledon.

Meanwhile, Hemel Hempstead Town have signed targetman Adam Cunnington, 32, who was released from his contract at Dartford by mutual consent yesterday.

Moore said on his Twitter account: "I've been wanting this guy for three season's now.  Every time we have played against him he has been an absolute handful."

Cunnington said on Twitter: "Thanks to Dartford for my short time at the club.  The opportunity to join Sam Moore and Jack Midson at Hemel Hempstead was too good to turn down.  I can't wait to get started now."

The Tudors are in second-place in the Vanarama National League South table with 25 points from 12 games, five points adrift of leaders Wealdstone.

Dartford are in seventeenth-place in the pecking order with 10 points from 12 games, while Tonbridge Angels are second-from-bottom in the table with eight points from their 12 league outings.
