Kieran Dunbar has departed Leamington FC, following a mutual termination of his contract with manager, Paul Holleran. The boss had this to say with Dunbar leaving, due to his hunger for regular first team football, ‘Myself and Kieran had a chat over the weekend. Kieran had a conversation with me at the start of pre season. He knows he’s at an age where getting more first team minutes is key for him, and he just didn’t want to be in the same situation as he was at the back end of last season. I don’t think that has changed much, so we’ve had a little bit of interest in him, he’s spoken to a couple of other clubs and will decide what he wants to do. As much as he is a great kid and we love having him around it’s the best thing for Kieran, there’s no doubt about that.”
