WEALDSTONE striker Scott Fitzgerald has left the club after a successful two-year spell with the Stones.
The 32-year old signed from Hayes & Yeading United in June 2010 and made 43 appearances for the club, netting an impressive 31 goals.
Manager Gordon Bartlett admitted he was disappointed to lose the experienced frontman but says Fitzgerald leaves Grosvenor Vale on good terms.
“We are very sorry to see Scott leave us,” said Bartlett.
“Scott has been a model professional and has provided a very positive contribution to the team and the dressing room over the past couple of seasons where he was highly regarded by the management team and all the players.
“We understand his reasons for leaving and wish him all the very best in whatever he chooses to do in the future.”
Fitzgerald started his career at Northwood before signing his first professional deal at Watford, scoring 12 goals in 55 games over two spells.
He also had two stints at Brentford, making 25 appearances and scoring four goals.
After a short spell at Basingstoke, he spent two years at Hayes & Yeading where he scored 25 times in 70 games before signing for Wealdstone in 2010.
Meanwhile, Stones summer signing Ries Stanislaus scored twice on his debut for Chalfont St Peter after joining them on loan this week.
