Daly departs the Gladiators

It’s been one in and one out in the Gladiators midfield late this week.

22 years old Jordan Barnett signed on the dotted line on Friday after turning in an impressive perform,ance in the 1-1 pre season friendly draw on Tuesday evening.

The Gladiators have now confirmed that Luke Daly, who joined Matlock in November last year having previously been with South Shields, has left the Proctor Cars Stadium.

“It hasn’t worked out for him” said Matlock boss Paul Phillips.

”We wish him all the best, he’s a very good player but we need the full package , it’s not just what happens on a Saturday, people have got to contribute in training and off the pitch as well.”

Daly‘s name featured on the team sheet for Bamber Bridge in their pre season win at Ashton Athletic recently.

Barnett’s arrival follows the acquisition of Chesterfield duo, striker Kallan Murphy and midfielder Leigh Whelan earlier in the week.
