After eight years with Maidstone United, Alex Flisher will be leaving the club this summer.
From July, the players will be training three mornings a week rather than two evenings and unfortunately he has turned down a deal due to work and personal commitments.
Flish’s departure will end a long association with his hometown club. Before making his first team debut in 2009, he played for the reserves and under 18s. As well as 275 first team appearances, he also picked up numerous league and cup honours, and became renowned for his trademark long throws.
Stones boss Jay Saunders said: “It’s been a pleasure to have him here at the club and I can only wish him well in his future career. Like everyone connected with the club, I’d have loved to have seen him in a Stones shirt next season but I respect his decision to put his family first – that’s the way it should be.”
Club chief executive Bill Williams added: “Alex has been a great servant to the club and will be sorely missed. We thank him for all he’s done for his hometown team and wish him and his family all the best for the future.”
As a contracted player, Alex will be made available for transfer.
