The club announced this morning that Daryl McMahon has left the Fleet on a free transfer and rejoined Boreham Wood on a two-and-a-half-year contract.
Vice chairman Peter Varney said, “Daryl is leaving us as a player but he will remain as our Academy manager and has a key role going forward in developing our academy and the talented young players in it. At 31 years of age the contract offered by Boreham Wood offers Daryl and his family security going forward and he goes with the best wishes of everyone at the club.
“Although I will still work closely with him in relation to the Academy, I would like to thank him for all his efforts over the past 18 months and particularly for taking charge of the team earlier in the season in the period following the departure of Steve Brown and the appointment of Jamie Day.”
Daryl McMahon told FleetOnline, “I would like to thank the fans and teammates for their support for me as captain and whilst in the caretaker role. I’d also like to thank Peter Varney and the board for their continued support in developing our academy which I am extremely excited about. I wish the new management team and squad all the best for the rest of the season.”
Daryl joined from Dover Athletic for £13,000 in June 2013 and went on to make 84 appearances (80 starts), scoring 19 goals, the most recent of which was the winner against Forest Green Rovers in the FA Trophy. He was appointed to head up the new Fleet Academy in March last year and made club captain during the summer.
