JORDAN STODDART has left Cirencester Town for his home town club of Worcester City.

Stoddart's final game for the Centurions was the 1-1 draw at Mangotsfield United in which he played arguably his best game for the club.

The tall, uncompromising 'Stodds' has been an virtual ever-present in Charlie Griffin's side and will leave a large void to fill, especially as fellow centre back Matt Coupe also opted to leave last week, signing for Swindon Supermarine.

Stoddart, who signed in the summer from Bishops Cleeve, will now drop down a level to play in the Midland League Premier Division.

Stoddart announced on his Twitter feed on Sunday: "After an approach was made I have decided to join Worcester City FC.

"Just want to say a big thanks to Cirencester Town players and management for making me so welcome this season.

"It's been a pleasure to play and I wish everyone at the club, and the supporters, all the the best for the future."

Griffin immediately plugged one of the defensive gaps when Ellis Dunton returned to the club from Malmesbury Vics, where he had been operating as a striker.

Dunton was in the back four for Town at Mangotsfield and played like he had never been away.
