Pierce Sweeney has announced he has decided to leave Exeter City after five years in Devon.
The club had offered the 26-year-old a new deal, however he has decided not to accept it, meaning he is free to move on to another club.
In a message penned to supporters, Sweens has said:
"After five years I have decided now is time to leave Exeter City. I came to Exeter having not made a single appearance in English first team football and now leave having made 222.
It has not been an easy decision, but with a young family it was the right decision for us and my career moving forward.
A massive thanks to Paul Tisdale, Matt Taylor and Julian Tagg for giving me the opportunity to have played for this great club for five seasons.
I wish the club all the very best moving forward and hopefully see you all at SJP soon.
Thank you Grecians"
Sweeney joined the club in 2016 and leaves with 19 Grecian goals under his belt, including that memorable 96th minute winner at Bolton Wanderers on the penultimate game of last season.
Everyone at Exeter City wishes all the very best for the next stage of his career. Thanks for the memories, Sweens ❤️
