Spencer Weir-Daley has announced that he will be leaving Boston United.

The striker has made 176 appearances for the Pilgrims, scored 66 goals and won four trophies since initially joining the York Street club back in 2009.

However, he now feels the time is right to move on.

“After speaking with the manager (Dennis Greene) I felt that I wasn’t going to be at the forefront of his plans,” the 28-year-old said.

“I still think I can do a good job as a player and I want to play regularly.

“I’ve also just become a new dad and I need some stability. I have to make sure I do the best thing for my family.”

Weir-Daley won the UniBond Premier Play-off final, UniBond Knockout Cup and two Lincolnshire Senior Shields with the Pilgrims.

And he leaves the club with a heavy heart, adding: “Boston is a good place to be.

“The club is brilliant and so is everyone connected with the place. I’ve really enjoyed being at Boston and have so many good memories that I can’t remember them all.

“I just feel it’s my time to move on. I had a good conversation with the chairman (David Newton) this week.

“He’s a great guy and I wish him all the best.

“I’ll also miss the fans. It was an amazing feeling whenever I heard my chant - even when I wasn’t playing.

“I had a great relationship with the fans and I want to thank them.”

Weir-Daley, whose contract will expire this summer, says he is yet to open talks with other clubs.
