Outgoing Yeovil Town goalkeeper Jonny Maddison has given his views on his departure from the club, after two years at Huish Park. The 23 year old agreed to tear up his contract by mutual consent, despite still having a year left on his current deal. He heads out the door with 22 appearances to his name, two years after he signed for the club from Leicester City.
Maddison implies that the decision to leave the club was made by himself, rather than the Glovers first team management, with the obvious issue being his lack of time on the field of play, having seen Artur Krysiak and Stuart Nelson restrict his first team appearances, despite both picking up injuries during last season. However, Maddison said that leaving Yeovil was not a decision he took lightly:
"After many discussions and personal reflection over the summer, I have decided to mutually terminate my contract with Yeovil Town. It was a decision I did not take lightly - having made many memories, including my League debut which any player will never forget. For that reason, the club will always have a special place in my heart."
Maddison extended his thanks to the club's supporters and management team, but also had special words for goalkeeper coach Steve Phillips, who had arrived at the club during September 2017. Maddison described him as a massive influence on his game:
"I'd like to personally thank all the supporters for such a warm and welcoming reception I received since the day I signed, and constant support through all the good and bad times. Thank you to the Gaffer and Terry for the opportunity they have given me to play for this football club and everything they've done for me. And I'd also like to personally thank Steve Phillips for the work he's done to help me both on and off the pitch this season. He's a massive influence and a great character."
The goalkeeper also added his thanks to the players, and wished them good luck for next season:
"I would also like to wish all the boys the very best for the coming season. They are a great set of lads with fantastic attitude and work ethic, and they deserve all the rewards that come their way. Again, all the very best to everyone associated with the football club. I hope they achieve what they set out to, in the coming years."
