Salford City defender Michael Nottingham is set to leave the club.
The 29-year-old has made an impressive 93 appearances in two seasons at the club since arriving from Solihull Moors ahead of the Ammies’ debut season in the National League North, and lifted the league title for the second time in 2017-18. Despite being a right-back, he notched 11 goals in his first season, including the winner at Brackley Town and the all-important last minute equaliser against Chorley.
In 2017-18, he popped up with four more goals including another last minute equaliser, this time away at Stockport County for Salford’s first ever point at Edgeley Park.
On leaving the club, Nottingham said:
“I’m deeply saddened to say that my time with Salford City has come to an end. It’s the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make because it’s easily been the best two years of my life with so many ups and very little downs.
“I moved away from home to Manchester, leaving behind family and friends, but gaining new ones at Salford City. I’m extremely proud of my contribution and I’m leaving on the highest note possible. I’m really grateful for the opportunity given to me to play for such an amazing club that is on the rise.
“I really want to thank everybody for all the support I have had over the past two seasons the owners, the committee, the staff, the managers, all my team mates, and of course the supporters! Thank you all so much for everything and I wish everybody associated with the club the very best of luck.”
