Michael Gault leaves Club
Uploaded Saturday, 6th Jan, 2018 at 19:14

BALLYMENA United can confirm that Michael Gault has had his contract terminated by mutual consent.
Manager David Jeffrey broke the news to the club website after today's victory over Moyola in the Irish Cup, "it is disappointing news to have to report. Michael sustained a knee injury five weeks ago for which he had a scan and saw a specialist. After a period of rehab, unfortunately the knee was no better and the specialist advised that surgery was the only way forward.
If Michael has surgery now then he won't be back before the end of the season, so we have come to an agreement with him that works out best for player and for club. We will assist Michael in his treatment but mutually have agreed to cancel his contract to allow him the time to recover and get ready for next year.
It is a long road that knows no turns, but he has to get himself into a condition that earns him a contract, and who knows where that could be. We say thank you to Michael for his contribution this season and give all our best wishes for his recovery. He certainly won't be a stranger to the Showgrounds as we will continue to see him here."
