Stephen Johnson leaves FC to join Nantwich

FC United today announced the departure of Stephen Johnson, who has left the club and joined Nantwich Town.

United manager Karl Marginson said: "We are sorry to see Johno leave us again, but it has been very difficult for him travelling across from Liverpool for training and as everyone knows non-contract players at this level are not paid unless they play, so financially it has been very difficult for him. He also has a youngster and has just started a new job so personal circumstances have played a major part in his decision.

"It is a decision that I fully respect as a manager. As a club working together with our players, many who are young men with differing personal situations, there is always a commitment from my staff and the club to adopt an understanding and united approach to give everybody the best opportunity to be successful. Everyone at the club wishes Johno all the very best in the future. He’s been a popular member of the squad since his return and I’m sure he’ll be a success at Nantwich Town.”
