Winger Joe Francis has decided to call time on his spell with Ryman League Premier Division club Leiston after his contract expired earlier this month.

The Ipswich-based winger, who joined the Blues from Lowestoft Town back in the summer of 2013, scored 14 goals in all competitions this season from forty-nine appearances.

He has made 136 league appearances, scoring 42 goals in total, and was a key member of the squad.

The 30-year-old recently celebrated the birth of his second son and had this to say on his decision to leave: “My two boys are the main reason I am leaving Leiston and the Ryman League as the travelling is too much.

“I have loved my time at Leiston and I have nothing but the upmost respect for everyone involved at the club”.
