One of the first of Bostik League Premier club Billericay Town`s high-profile signings, defender Paul Kinchesky, has announced that he is leaving.
The 35-year-old defender, capped twice by England, made 627 professional appearances since his debut for Charlton Athletic in 1997.
Konchesky’s clubs also included West Ham, Fulham and Liverpool among others, before he left Leicester City for League One Gillingham in the summer of 2016.
He left the Gills in March to join ambitious Billericay after featuring rarely under then-Gillingham boss Ady Pennock.
Konchesky said that the time had come to leave the Blues due to other commitments.
He thanked Glenn Tamplin for everything he’s done since he joined the club, wished Town all the best for the future and has said that he’ll be visiting The AGP Arena in the future to support the team.
