Boston United chairman David Newton has revealed that winger Steve Spriggs quit the club by text message.
The winger played just 45 minutes for Boston - in their 7-1 drubbing at Altrincham - before deciding to rejoin King’s Lynn Town.
“I think we found out by text, but these things happen,” Newton said.
Spriggs has now publically admitted he made a mistake leaving the Walks for York Street.
He told the Eastern Daily Press he didn’t enjoy his time – two training sessions and half a match – with Boston and was put off by the travelling.
Some United fans have pointed out that Spriggs should have been well aware of the road time, considering he joined a league which had the word ‘north’ in the title.
Boston boss Graham Drury said: “He said he wasn’t enjoying it here. That’s strange because he was buzzing when he was here with us.
“Maybe there was a better offer on the table.
“He doesn’t want to play for Boston United, we’ll move on.”
