Anthony Straker has left Aldershot Town after turning down the club’s offer of a new contract.

Straker returned to the EBB Stadium last summer, having spent five seasons with The Shots from 2007 to 2012.

With thirty-seven appearances this season – including the second leg of the play-off semi-final against Tranmere Rovers – the Grenada international is now fourth in the club’s all-time appearance list, on 266 games.

Straker originally joined Aldershot from Crystal Palace in July 2007 and in his first season won both the Conference (National League) championship and Setanta Shield.

He remained a regular in the side as The Shots finished fifteenth in League Two and then, under Kevin Dillon, reached the play-off semi-finals in 2009/10.

He also featured in Aldershot’s Capital Cup ties against West Ham United and Manchester United in 2011, before leaving The Shots in July 2012 to join Southend United.

Straker has also played for Wycombe Wanderers, Grimsby Town, York City and Motherwell.
