And despite not featuring as often in recent weeks, 27 of those 74 sightings have come this year.

His only goal this term came in the 2-0 win at home to Concord Rangers back in September.

Speaking on Twitter, the player himself said: “My time at St Albans has come to an end and I would like to thank the fans and coaching staff for having me at the club.

“It’s been nothing but a pleasure.”
