Phil who has been at the club for eight seasons apart from a short spell at Hadleigh United has made 271 appearances for the R’s in that time scoring 103 goals.
Manager, Tom Rothery had the following to say on the departure of Phil Kelly.
“It’s disappointing to see Phil leave but after we received seven day approaches for him we allowed Philbo to speak with the clubs and it’s a shame but it’s probably a natural and good time for Phil to seek a new challenge.
He’s been a great servant for the club and achieved amazing success playing a huge part in that and somebody I’ve got on with really well, so whilst disappointed I’m also hoping this proves to be a good move for him personally and one that revives his love for the game. I’m sure he will be asset to his next club”.
Everybody at the Regent wishes Phil all the best with his next club.
