Former Port Vale players Joe Cardle and Chris Regis have both moved on to pastures new this week.
Cardle opts for Scotland
Cardle had joined AFC Fylde in the National League during the summer but has now left to move back to his family in Scotland.
AFC Fylde manager Dave Challinor said: “Joe has found the last month really difficult with his personal circumstances as his wife and young family still live up in Scotland. “Their plan was to relocate but this unfortunately hasn’t materialised.
“I had a good chat with him and as a club we have reluctantly agreed to go our separate ways to allow him to move back north of the border to be with his family. He goes with our best wishes and a personal thanks from myself and all of the squad. He’ll be missed by everyone but it’s important he does what is best for him at this time.”
Regis moves on to rivals
Midfielder Chris Regis has left Torquay United and signed for National League South rivals Wealdstone. The 21-year-old had been training with several clubs in recent weeks, after being told that he was not in Gulls manager Gary Johnson’s plans, and the Stones have confirmed that he has signed for them after being released from his Plainmoor contract.
It mirrors a similar situation at Vale Park last season where Regis was told he was not in manager Neil Aspin’s plans and would be allowed to train with other clubs.
