CHESTER CITY last night released their Luxembourg international goalkeeper Stephane Gillet following his two-month spell with the club.
The 28-year-old former Paris St Germain shot-stopper, who made 10 senior appearances for City during his stay, received a financial settlement in lieu of the remainder of his contract and is now expected to find a club in his homeland.
With first-choice keeper Chris Mackenzie expected to return to action in a fortnight and youngster Paul Harrison performing so impressively on his Football League debut on Tuesday night against Torquay United, it was decided by all parties that the time was right for the player to leave.
City chairman Stephen Vaughan said: "We would like to thank Stephane for his efforts whilst he was with us, and obviously we wish him well in his future career.
"There could also be other player movement in the near future as we assess the playing squad, and I'm not necessarily referring to those players whose names were circularised last week.
"Mark Wright and myself have to do what we think is best for Chester City Football Club, and if that means that certain players move on to make space for others, who fit into our plans not only for the present, but also the future, then so be it."
Chester are next in action on Saturday afternoon when they travel to the North East to face Darlington at the Williamson Stadium.
Meanwhile, the remainder of Chester's allocation of 2,000 tickets for the derby match against Wrexham at the Racecourse on Sunday, March 26 go on general sale today.
Tickets are priced at £16 for adults, £10 senior citizens and £5 for juniors, they will be on sale at the Deva Stadium from 10am to 7pm.
City have rearranged their outstanding fixture against Boston United. The game will be played on Wednesday, March 29 at York Street (kick-off 7.45pm).
Last night's scheduled Pontin's League match between City and Wrexham was postponed because the Deva Stadium pitch was waterlogged.
