Ollie Gray leaves Ramsgate: I have loved every minute being part of this great club
RAMSGATE defender Ollie Gray has left the club to attend a full-time masters course at university.
Gray scooped the players’ player-of-the-year award last season as Lloyd Blackman’s side finished in sixteenth-place in the Bostik South Division table with 54 points from their 46 league outings.
“I’d just like to say that I am sad to be leaving Ramsgate FC,” Gray, who has also played for his home-town club Margate and Sittingbourne, told www.ramsgate-fc.co.uk.
“I have been given the opportunity to attend uni to study for my masters, which is a full-time course.
“I attended an interview to get on the course and only a number of places were available and luckily I got on, which I’m looking forward to starting.
“Unfortunately, I cannot commit to Ramsgate and I would like to thank Blacky and the management for being supportive with this and wish them all the best and I’m sure I will see Ramsgate smashing the league this season.
“I am most grateful to the fans for their support, they are by far the best fans in the league and I have loved every minute being part of this great club.
“I will hopefully be down some points in the year and will pop in to see everyone. Ramsgate FC forever."
Gray, meanwhile, is looking for a new club down on the East Sussex coast, playing at the same level as Ramsgate.
"I am moving to Eastbourne and looking for a new club. I am hoping to still play at the same level or higher during my studies as I will have the time to do it."
