Winger Anthony Griffith-Jnr has ended his stay with Matlock Town after signing for Evo-Stik Division One South side Loughborough Dynamo.
Griffith-Jnr joined the Gladiators from Eastwood Town last season but has struggled to gain a regular starting berth in Atkins’ squad.
The Blues boss said: “Anthony’s injury hasn’t helped him as he’s been playing catch-up. The lad obviously wants to play and we can’t give him a regular game.
“He goes with our thanks and best wishes. Whether we get a replacement in I’m not sure at present, we’re always looking at new players, but at moment I’m satisfied with the group of players we’ve got.”
