South Hobart striker Brayden Mann has left the league champions to return to the North-West Coast.
He is likely to return to his former club, Ulverstone.
Mann joined South Hobart this past season from Ulverstone and proved a huge success, scoring 12 goals to finish as the Forestry Tasmania Southern Premier League’s third-ranked scorer.
A broken toe kept him out for a couple of months, so one can only imagine how many goals he would have scored if he had played in every match.
He has recently returned from a trip to England with Morton Soccer Schools.
Before going to England, he trained with the Melbourne Heart A-League youth side, together with a couple of other South Hobart youngsters, Liam Scott and Andy Brennan.
Mann has left his employment and is reported to be heading back home to the North-West Coast next week.
His departure is a significant loss to South Hobart, the reigning champions, who have since signed Bobby Eaves from Somerset.
