“I met some great people at the club, and the fans were great with me so I wish them, the staff and everyone else associated with the club every success in the future.”

Director of Football Craig Hignett told the club's website: “Andrew is a proper professional, a great lad and someone who we wish the very best of luck for the future,

“We are sorry it hasn’t worked out here but I’m sure that wherever he goes next he will be a success.”
