Defender Paul Dixon has left the club by mutual consent.

19 November 2018

Defender Paul Dixon has left the club by mutual consent.

The former Dundee and Huddersfield player joined the Mariners on a two-year deal during the summer of 2017.

Speaking after signing off with the club, Dixon said: “I’ve come to an agreement with the club, it’s time to move on.

“I would just like to thank everybody at the club.

“It’s a shame that it’s finished in this way, coming to a mutual agreement, but that’s football – it’s time to go.”

Being so far away from his family who are back in his native Scotland was a big factor in his decision.

Paul said: “I’ve spent almost a year here without my family. The two young boys, at the ages that they are, it is very important that I get back to them.

“Whenever it was possible I would get back to see them. The manager was very understanding, I have to thank him for his honesty and his generosity at times, letting me go home.”

What now for the 31 year old?

He added: “There’s a couple of things with notes of interest. It’s something that I will work on when I get back home.

“I would like to wish my team-mates and the club all the best for the rest of the season.”

We would like to wish Paul all the best for the future.
