Jake Cass scores twice on Enfield Town debut in 4-3 win at Horsham after leaving promotion rivals Bishop's Stortford
Jake Cass has signed for Bishop's Stortford's promotion rivals Enfield Town – and scored twice on his debut as they won 4-3 at Horsham to move above his former club in the Pitching In Isthmian League, Premier Division on Tuesday night (Jan 11).
The striker left the Blues on Friday (Jan 7) having been their leading scorer with 15 goals this season in his second spell with the club.
A Stortford statement said the two parties had "decided to amicably part company", but Cass later tweeted that he did not want to leave before manager Steve Smith gave an interview saying the reason the forward left was because he had lied to him and disrespected him.
Cass made his debut for Enfield Town at Horsham on Tuesday and was thrown straight into the starting line-up.
His 21st-minute goal made it 2-2 and then, with the teams locked at 3-3, he bagged a 78th-minute winner as his new side leapfrogged the Blues into fourth.
Smith's men are now fifth, occupying the last play-off spot, going into their home match with 19th-placed Brightlingsea Regent on Saturday (Jan 15) – the first of three successive league games at the R&D Advisors UK Stadium.
Leaders Worthing are seven points clear, but the same number of points separate second-placed Folkestone Invicta and Carshalton Athletic in 10th.
