Very best of luck to Will. Always tried hard for our club. When he first played during his second spell with us I thought he was well off the pace. I thought what is the point of signing him. But as he played more games, he got much better and much fitter. He still has at least one good season left in him. I hope someone gives him a chance. I don't know him personally, but meant to be a really nice likeable guy as well.

Another year he probably would have got another contract, but as he says, the Management team want to go in a different direction. Based on the last 3 or 4 seasons, I have to agree with that.

Good luck to Will - he will always be welcomed back at the Hall.

I would have retained him as well but I defer to the football department on that. One thing to take from this is that any rumours surrounding late or non-payment of wages must be unfounded if players are hoping to return?

Wish him all the best, he clearly has a soft spot for our club, he always gave his all unlike many others over the last few years, and played a big part in keeping us in this league.

Great respect for the effort Will has always put in when wearing the shirt, but there comes a time when the curtain comes down at a club for all players and I think the right decision has been made. we need goals from midfield and we don't have that at the moment.

Thanks once more for all your efforts Will, welcome back any time, sign up for SUEPA!

Another great servant to the club not happy about not getting a further year's contract.Anyone who saw the play off finals highlights yesterday will appreciate why.I just hope any new recruits coming in will be younger,fitter (unlikely) and better.
