SHEPPEY UNITED have announced the departure of centre-half Jahmal Howlett-Mundle.

“Jahmal is a great professional who always gave 100% in training and was dedicated to win every game on the pitch. He’s left a great legacy at the club and the island,” said assistant manager Marcel Nimani in a statement.

“He was a great guy to work with both on and off the pitch and we at Sheppey United wish him all the best for the future, and of course he is always welcome back at the club.”

Ernie Batten’s side clinched the quadruple last season and will be playing in the Isthmian League South East Division for the first time next season.

“After two-and-a-half years playing for Sheppey, I have decided it is the right time to move on,” added Howlett-Mundle.

“I have been part of an incredible group who have rightfully been successful this season.

“It has not been an easy decision to leave by any stretch of the imagination.  I am leaving players and management, fans and volunteers that have allowed me to express myself and enjoy football again.”

Howlett-Mundle announced that he is bisexual just before the start of the season and the footballer paid tribute to the club for their support.

He said: “The on and off field support I have received from all at the club during my time here has given me the confidence to be myself in the changing room and while playing, which I will be eternally grateful for.

“I would just like to thank everybody associated with the club for being the amazing human beings they are and I wish the club all the very best moving forwards.”

Howlett-Mundle made 76 appearances for the club, scoring once and was a consistent solid performer in the ninth-tier of English football last season.
