John Finnigan Leaves
John finnigan has left the football club 'by mutual consent'.
The experienced midfielder has yet to make a competetive appearance this season thanks to a series of ankle and calf injuries which also caused him to miss most of pre-season and large chunks of last season.
Since joining the club last summer he has played just 26 times, three as a substitute, and scored three goals. When he has made it onto the field his quality has shone through and had he been able to get fit would have made him a key member of the team.
Speaking to the Official Website, Finnigan said, "I am disappointed that I haven't been able to offer more during my time here. I have been here for almost a year and a half and I would have loved to have contributed more on the pitch. I think I have done my bit off the pitch in terms of the dressing room and behind the scenes but injuries have just put paid to what I have been able to do as a player."
Manager Steve Burr said, "We were hoping John could be instrumental for us this season with the experience he has, but he has some injury issues that just aren't disappearing. We lose an experienced lad and a thorough professional but, without a doubt, we are leaving the door open for him here to see what develops and we hope he still may be able to get involved with us if the situation arises."
