Gaz has recently started a new job in security with long hours and says he will no longer be able to commit to midweek training or many of the away games.
“I’m gutted to be going, but life moves on and work has to come first” said the Llandudno-based player.
“I’ve had a great four seasons at the Bay and would like to thank all the managers I’ve worked with, and particularly the current management team of Frank, Gus, Ade and Dan, who have helped make me a better player.
“I want to thank the board and everyone at the club who made me and my family feel so welcome. My dad is particularly gutted I won’t be playing at the Bay next season, but we will both try to get up to home games whenever we can and I want to wish everyone at the club all the very best.”
Gaz was signed from Llandudno in 2010 when Dave Challinor was manager. He made his debut when he came on as a second half substitute in a 4-1 away win at Kendal Town and went on to become a regular member of the team, helping them win promotion to the Conference North with victory over FC United of Manchester in the NPL play-off final that season.
He was just eight games away from making his 200th appearance for the Seagulls, having scored 19 goals from midfield.
The manager commented: “I’m sad to see Gaz go because he has been a fantastic servant to the club and has been brilliant to work with, but I understand his situation and he has to look after himself and his life. We wish him all the very best for the future.”
