Charlie leaves the club

22 May 2014

Striker's contract will not be renewed

Neal Ardley today confirmed that Charlie Sheringham has not been offered a new contract for next season and will therefore be looking for another club.

Following talks with the striker (pictured above) at the club today, Neal said that it would be best for both parties for Charlie to leave AFC Wimbledon.

Charlie suffered a bad ankle injury which curtailed his progress not long after joining the Dons last summer and he struggled for regular football after that setback.

Speaking to Dons Player, Neal Ardley said: “We had an open conversation today and from Charlie’s point of view he feels he probably never got a good run in the team and rightly so. It was stop-start for him after he suffered a bad injury. From my point of view we had a bit of a striker crisis throughout the season and we were not scoring enough goals.

“It has not quite worked out and it’s an area that I feel needs to be freshened up to try and solve the problem from last season. Charlie is a good player and I think he will do well wherever he goes. I hope he gets a good deal somewhere else.”

Charlie made 15 league 2 appearances last season and scored one goal, a vital equaliser in the win at Newport County.

      AFC Wimbledon thanks Charlie for his efforts at the club and wishes him every success in his future career.
