Former Queens Park Rangers striker Leroy Griffiths has parted company with Ryman League Premier Division club…..
…..Harrow Borough after just nine games.
Boro manager Dave Anderson confirmed that Griffiths had left the club by mutual consent, barely two months since he signed from Sutton United.
The 37-year-old failed to score in a competitive game during his time at Earlsmead – although his departure was not related to his performance on the pitch, but for personal reasons.
“To be fair to Leroy, he was struggling with his travel,” said Anderson. “So it didn’t work out how we thought it would and we thought it was better to just shake hands.”
Harrow became Griffiths’ sixteenth club in a long and varied career and Anderson fully expects him to continue playing.
In the meantime, he is focused on finding a replacement ahead of Saturday’s trip to Premier Division table-toppers Maidstone United.
“I think he’s going to look for something closer to home because of his family commitments, and I wish him well with that as he’s a great lad,” said the manager.
“I’m working to bring in a few players during the week. I’m hoping to add two to three players to the squad before the trip to Maidstone.”
Griffiths had been a long-term target for Anderson, ever since the Boro manager’s days as AFC Wimbledon boss, following the striker’s decisive double in a 2-1 win over the Dons for Fisher Athletic in a Ryman Premier Division play-off in 2006.
