Farnham Town confirm the departure of striker Charlie Postance

Farnham Town can confirm that striker Charlie Postance will be leaving the Club this summer.

The 31-year-old striker joined the Town last summer to add some firepower to the attack, arriving from Combined Counties Premier Division South rivals Abbey Rangers, assuming the #9 shirt in the process.

Postance boasted an impressive record at Step 5 after leading the entire division in goals scored in 2022/23 with 30 in 35 league games for Rangers as they secured a fourth-placed finish in the table before making the move to The Memorial Ground.

Forming part of one of the country’s most formidable attacks at the level this season, Postance was one of three players along with Shamal Edwards and Owen Dean to reach 20 or more goals across all competitions in 2023/24 as the Town would go on to record 178 goals across their 54 games.

He netted the first of his 20 goals on his home debut in the 4-0 win against Sandhurst Town, and finished the season in fine form, bagging a hat-trick in the 7-0 away win at Tooting and Mitcham United on the final day which secured Farnham Town’s invincible title-winning campaign.

No outfield player made more appearances this past season than Charlie’s 51, and the towering striker added six assists to his 20 goals, making him one of eight players to reach 25+ goal contributions. His 76 minutes-per-goal ratio was also one of the best in the team.

Manager Paul Johnson said: “Charlie was one of my first recruits last summer as I knew exactly what sort of player and person we would be getting, but most importantly return we would get from him. I had worked with him at Bedfont Sports where he was a reliable goalscorer, and he was the same at Abbey Rangers winning the league’s Golden Boot the year before we signed him.

“He’s as reliable as they come at this level. He was always available to stand up and be counted, scored some important goals and loads of them. I know how much this season’s success meant to Charlie, and he was an important part of our run. He’ll always be remembered as an invincible. We all wish him the best next season and beyond.”

Everyone at Farnham Town would like to wish Charlie all the best as he moves on to the next chapter of his football career, and would like to congratulate him and his partner, Holly, on the birth of their first child! Both he and his family will always be welcomed back to the Club with open arms.
