Dave King has departed to Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central neighbours Aylesbury FC.
Ducks` boss Tony Joyce said: “Dave is a fantastic lad and a very talented player. His attitude when playing for us was always first class. When he joined us we always knew he had the talent to push on again in his career and as early as pre-season he had interest from other clubs. We gave him back his confidence and belief and it showed in his performances. I wish him every success in his future and he is a player I would be more than happy to work with again.
“The speculation of other players was a little bit of a pain but as a manager it is part of the job and this will always happen when you have good young players playing well.
“On that note I am pleased that Warren Garcia is staying put at Aylesbury United. Warren has been with me on and off for three seasons and after a good chat with the player I'm pleased that he decided to stay.
New signing Lucas Flood had a good debut in the 1-0 away win at Hatfield Town on Saturday.
Flood is a 23-year old centre back whose previous clubs include Dunstable Town and Leverstock Green.
He made nearly fifty appearances for Dunstable last season, having re-signed for the Blues after a short spell with Leverstock.
Joyce added: “Luke is a player that we had been after for a while and I am sure he will have a good season with us in a green and white shirt.”
The manager continued: “Our league form has got back on track with two wins at home to Hanwell Town and Hatfield.
“Risborough Rangers, fair play to them, they thoroughly deserved the win. As a manager it is hard to legislate when all fourteen of your players them have a poor game. After the defeat I was not best pleased.
“We had what you call a good dressing room discussion and the players that we believe in put it right Saturday with a controlled and professional performance away at Hatfield.”
