City’s joint manager Graham Golds has praised Greg Ngoyi in the wake of the striker’s departure from the club.

Last season’s top scorer was struggling to attend training and midweek games due to work commitments so the club agreed to terminate his contract.

Speaking to the Herts Ad, Golds said: “Greg is a great lad; I can’t speak highly enough of him.

“He scored a lot of goals but he was always humble.

“He has been limited this year with injuries but when he came in he still scored goals.”

Ngoyi scored 16 goals in 22 games last year, earning him a pre-season trial with Dagenham. However, on his return to Clarence Park he picked up a hamstring injury, which kept him on the sideline. An “out of character” red card followed at Witham Town, keeping him off the pitch even longer.

He still played a part in one of City’s biggest wins of the year, scoring the second goal in a 2-0 win over Chelmsford City in the FA Trophy.

“It’s unfortunate with his job but it is the best move for the player and the club,” added Golds.

“We need players who can commit to the team, which, unfortunately, he couldn’t do due to his job. We wish him the best for the future.”
