Midfielder Spencer Harris has left Matlock Town after two years at the Proctor Cars Stadium.

The experienced 30 year old who has also served Hyde United, Buxton and Shaw Lane in the Northern Premier League and Bradford(Park Avenue), Guiseley and Boston United in the National League North, has decided to move on despite being asked to return for pre season training by Matlock manager Paul Phillips.

“We want to bring that little bit more energy and conviction into our midfield and Spencer was aware that we were identifying more midfielders to bring in so there would be that extra competition for places. It’s an amicable parting, Spencer’s been brilliant for me, I have nothing but praise for him. It’s just one of those things which happens in football.”

Harris himself announced his departure from the Gladiators on twitter saying “I’d just like to thank everyone at Matlock Town for the last two seasons. My time has come to an end, been very up and down with everything that’s been going on. Many memories made and met so many top blokes. Wish everyone involved with the club everything they deserve.”
