Former AFC Hornchurch attacker Bradley Warner says he felt he had to move on to start playing at his best once again.
Warner re-joined Bostik North side Bowers & Pitsea on November, 20, in a bid to revive his playing form.
The attacker originally signed for the Urchins in June 2017 after an impressive season with Pitsea.
Despite interest from National League sides Warner joined Hornchurch making his debut in the 2017/18 season opener, a 3-0 home win against Soham Town Rangers in which he took only six minutes to open his scoring account.
He found the net 16 times and picked up 15 assists to help the Urchins seal the Bostik North title last term.
This season he found the net five times and set up another six in 19 appearances.
“It weren’t easy because I enjoyed my time there, but I found that I wasn’t really playing that well for quite a while.
“I think I need to freshen up my game and I spoke to Jim, I was quite up front about it, and I thought this was the better move for me coming back to Bowers.”
Warner says he will always cherish his memories at Hornchurch and pin-pointed winning the Bostik North title as a big moment for him personally.
“Of course I did, we won the league and me on a personal level I’ve never actually been promoted from a competitive league so that was really good.
“I had some great memories there, the boys are good, the fans, staff and everyone was great – it was just a personal decision for me to step away and try freshening up my game.”
