CALLUM Reed and Simon Mowbray have left Wisbech Town following discussions with manager Steve Appleby.

Appleby said: “There was a bit of fall out after the Haverhill game because Callum was not happy about being left out of the side. I told him that while he was on holiday he should think things over.

“I spoke to him over the weekend and Callum will not be playing for us again. He is a good player but, at the same time, he is a complicated lad. No one likes being left out of the side but no one player is bigger than the club.”

Reed joined Wisbech from Stamford in the 2010-11 season and scored the winning goal in the Ridgeons League Cup final at the end of the campaign. But a month later he announced he was joining King’s Lynn only to return to the Fenmen before the season even started. He missed the end of last season when his mother was taken ill.

Mowbray joined Wisbech in the summer and although he started the first league game against Walsham, when Chris Bacon was suspended, he has since been relegated to the bench.

Appleby added: “Mowbray has gone for footballing reasons too. I needed to prune the squad with 17 players and I don’t think he would have been happy on the bench or going to play at Leverington.

“Rogan McGeorge and Neal Spafford have done well in the last three games in Callum’s position, while Dubi and Chris have done well up front and we have Darren Jimson as well.”

Peterborough Northern Star have made an approach to Wisbech with a view to signing Reed.
