Atherton Collieries’ Matty Grimshaw and Dave Sherlock have announced they are leaving the club after years of loyal service.
Grimshaw made his bow in black and white stripes on 21 December 2013 in a NWCFL Division 1 home fixture against Rochdale Town.
Manager Brad Cooke said: “Grimmy is a gentle giant, an absolutely top bloke who played with me prior to Cleggy coming in. He has been top drawer on and off the pitch.
“Although game time has been limited in the past couple of seasons, his presence behind the scenes has been just as important.”
