Weymouth manager Mark Molesley paid tribute to Callum Buckley after the defender made his exit from the Terras.
Popular left-back Buckley terminated his contract after appearing just seven times this season.
The former Bournemouth and Aldershot man struggled to make an impact with the signing of Ollie Harfield and an ankle injury hindering his prospect of regular match minutes.
Buckley also joined BetVictor Southern Premier South outfit Hayes and Yeading United on loan for a month as Weymouth kept the defender match fit.
Manager Mark Molesley admitted the decision to allow Buckley, one of his first signings, to leave had been extremely difficult.
He told Echosport: “It always is (difficult) when one of your own flies the nest. Callum was one of the first players I thought of to bring into the football club with me.”
