We can confirm that Shaun Pearson will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of June
Club Director John Fenty has spoken with Shaun Pearson to thank him on behalf of the club for his terrific professionalism and services, which included sterling work in the community and youth academy, always at the ready to help young aspiring footballers.
"Shaun is another gem and we are sad to see him leave knowing that he will be missed as a fans' favourite.
Irrespective of Shaun being under contract until 30th June, he explained that he was in a position where he needed a decision from our club, as he had other offers on the table.
After a discussion with Russell, it was concluded that it was unreasonable to ask Shaun to wait any longer as potential plans unfold here. This I relayed to him yesterday and thanked him on behalf of the club and particularly myself.
Shaun asked me personally if our club could wait until today before making any comment.
To conclude, this decision has been made with a very heavy heart. I am sure that everyone will join me in wishing Shaun and his lovely family all the very best.
He will be missed and remembered fondly."
Shaun has today agreed to sign for National League side, Wrexham. We wish him all the best with his new club.
