Blues winger departs Victory Road

Blues winger Joe Francis has decided to call time on his spell at Victory Road after his contract expired earlier this month. The Ipswich based winger who joined the Blues from Lowestoft Town back in the summer of 2013 scored 14 goals in all competitions this season from 49 appearances. He has made 136 League appearances scoring 42 goals and was a key member of the squad. The 30 year old recently celebrated the birth of his second son and Joe had this to say on his decision to leave;

"My two boys are the main reason I am leaving Leiston and the Ryman League as the travelling is too much. I have loved my time at Leiston FC and I have nothing but the upmost respect for everyone involved at the club. Good luck to everyone "

Everyone at Victory Road would like to wish Joe and his family the very best of luck for the future and thank him for his tremendous efforts when playing for the club.
