Adam Roscrow has left Wimbledon for a fresh challenge with The New Saints FC.
The 25-year-old striker, who joined us in the summer of 2019, has signed for an undisclosed sum with the Welsh Premier League club, who have won the national title a record 13 times. Having scored plenty of goals in the same league during his time with Cardiff Met, Adam will be aiming to get his career back on track with New Saints.
Adam made 22 appearances for Wimbledon, 17 of those as a substitute, and scored two goals, both in the Papa John’s Trophy.
Glyn Hodges felt it was the right time for Adam to move on to gain regular football elsewhere, and our manager thanked him for his efforts in a Dons shirt.
Glyn said: "In the first season it didn’t help with his injuries as he didn’t have the full pre-season to make the impact that he needed. It was a big ask for him to make the step-up from the level he was at previously, but he applied himself well and he couldn’t have worked and tried any harder. He’s a great kid and he got on well with all the boys.
"He has fallen down the pecking order here for the forwards. He probably found it a bit frustrating this season. Ryan Longman came in and did particularly well, and now Zach is there or thereabouts and pushing. We also have Pigs and Ollie and they are experienced campaigners, so it was a tough ask for him, but he conducted himself well.
"Now this opportunity has come up for Adam and he feels the same - he needs to go out and play, to start regularly at his age, and start banging the goals in again. We wish Adam well in his career.”
All at AFC Wimbledon thank Adam for his contribution and we wish him every success in the future.
