Tom Ward has left St Albans City by mutual consent.

The defender joined the Saints on a month loan from Gainsborough Trinity in November 2013, which turned into a 18-month deal after he impressed alongside Ben Martin at the heart of the defence.

He went on to make 29 appearances in the 2013/14 season and another seven this campaign.

Ward’s departure opens the door for James Kaloczi to challenge Martin and Darren Locke for more time while the club has made an approach for Hornchurch defender Omar Beckles, who impressed in Monday night’s cup win, to bring added depth to a talented group.
