Paying tribute to Simpson on the club's Facebook page, Greygoose said: "I would just like to show my total respect and appreciation for the service Gareth Simpson has given this club – on the pitch, but also off the pitch.

"A true gent and professional, it was great to see him finally win some trophies his career deserved.

"However, like all players their time is up when it is up and Simmo feels it is time for him to face a fresh challenge."
