He also thanked the club’s supporters: “Also, special thanks to the away boys and all the fans, they’ve been superb since day one. Best of luck for the future”.

The defender joined the club from Chichester and made his debut at home to Leatherhead in January 2014.

He also scored in winning penalty shoot-outs over Whitehawk (Sussex Senior Cup semi-final) and more dramatically, the winning kick in a FA Cup replay with St. Neots Town but only scored a single goal in his three years at Woodside Road.

He leaves the club with over 150 appearances to his name.
