Grays Athletic announced last night that forward Darelle Russell had left the club to sign for their landlords, Aveley.
Russell has been with Athletic since the summer, signing in August from Braintree Town. Hew previously played for Barking, Cheshunt, Haringey Borough, Billericay Town and Waltham Abbey, making twenty six appearances for the Abbotts last season and scoring ten goals. He's played six times for Grays so far this season, but is yet to find the net.
Grays manager Jim Cooper told the club website:
“Darelle was a well respected member of the team. I spoke to Darelle and fully understood the reasons why he had to leave us for Aveley. I wish him all the very best and thank him for his efforts this season.”
