Alan Marriott has left Mansfield Town after failing to agree a new deal with the Stags.
The former Lincoln City goalkeeper had been with the Nottinghamshire side for more than five years.
Marriott took to twitter to say: “Very sad and disappointed to be leaving Mansfield. Really wanted to re-sign on reduced deal but don't think it was gonna happen..”
Stags boss Paul Cox said: “Alan has been a tremendous servant to the club in the years that I’ve been here and I’d like to place on record my thanks to him for his efforts.
“I wish him every success in the future.”
The 35-year-old made 201 league appearances for Mansfield, keeping 66 clean sheets, but is now free to talk to other clubs.
The former Tottenham Hotspur trainee joined Lincoln City in 1999 and was a pivotal part of the Imps teams which made the League Two play-offs five years in a row.
However, he was let go in 2008 by then manager Peter Jackson. It was a shock decision, with the popular Marriott just one season away from securing a testimonial game.
