Leiston release striker Danny Smy
10:00 18 December 2012
DANNY Smy has left Leiston - just ten weeks after re-joining the Ryman League Premier Division side.
Smy’s work commitments saw him leave Leiston in the summer after helping the Suffolk side to win Ryman League Division One North at the first attempt last season.
The striker subsequently signed for Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division Felixstowe & Walton United, but a change in his work patterns saw him re-join Leiston at the start of October.
But Leiston, who tonight travel to Ram Meadow to face Bury Town in an eagerly-awaited Ryman Premier match, have now decided to release Smy.
Leiston manager Mark Morsley said: “It is really sad that I feel that Danny will not be a part of our squad going forward.
“He has been a valuable part of our success since I joined the club and I believe that a lot of the goals we scored from midfield in the two championship-winning seasons were down to his tireless work and excellent hold up play whilst leading the line.
“On a personal note I will miss the guy as I think he’s a great lad but I believe it is the right decision for the dynamics of the squad and that must always come first.”
