Goalkeeper Andrew Dawber has left Accrington Stanley by mutual consent.

The 20-year-old, who has been with the club since he was 14, has decided to look for first team football elsewhere.

Dawber made his debut aged 17 under Paul Cook and has also played league games under former managers Leam Richardson and James Beattie and has trained with Manchester United and Liverpool over the years.

His chances have been limited in recent times, with loan spells at Marine and Clitheroe, and he said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here but it hasn’t worked out.

“I will have to look at myself as to why it hasn’t worked out for me and see if I could have done more and why it’s happened.

“I have loved my time at Accrington Stanley, I love my team-mates and I feel sad at leaving but I have to now look to the future.

“I want to thank the fans, my team-mates and everyone who has supported me at Accrington Stanley.

Manager John Coleman said: “Andrew has been frustrated . I recently brought in Tony Warner as cover as Dawbs has been injured. He thinks his chances are limited with us so he has asked to leave and we are not going to stand in his way.”
