Tom Wraight

Wraight and Phipps exit the Gallagher

Tom Wraight and Harry Phipps are the latest players to leave the club.

The pair were released by Jay Saunders this evening, as the Stones boss works on a new squad for next season.

Wraight arrived at the Gallagher last summer, after two prolific seasons with East Thurrock United where he scored 43 goals during the club’s promotion from the Isthmian Premier and first season in National League South.

He made 27 appearances for the Stones, opening his goalscoring account at Torquay in December and doubling his tally with a header in the New Year’s Day derby against Dover Athletic.

Jay said: “I am disappointed things didn’t work out for Wraighty. He was a player I was keen to bring to the club and I’ve no regrets about giving him the opportunity.

“Had it not been for that awful run of injuries he had, things might have turned out differently. He’s one of those I’ll definitely keep an eye on and hope that he can build his fitness up over the summer and have a decent year ahead.”

Phipps signed an 18-month deal in December 2016 after a series of impressive performances for Margate.

He went on to make 11 appearances for the Stones and had successful loan spells at Welling United and most recently at East Thurrock.

Jay said: “Harry’s a top lad and I wish all the best for the future. He needs to be playing regular football and that’s something I can’t guarantee here.

“He had a good run of games with East Thurrock at the end of the season and I am sure he’ll have some offers to consider in the next few weeks.”
