ACCRINGTON STANLEY’S Benin International forward Romauld Boco, has left the Fraser Eagle Stadium following a mutual termination of his contract.

Boco, who had only been back in East Lancashire for a matter of days after returning from the African Cup of Nations, is understood to have been unhappy with life in Accrington and wanted to move on.

Accrington’s Chief Executive Rob Heys said: ‘Romu hasn’t been happy for a while for a number of reasons, and has ultimately decided that he wants to move on.

‘He is a great lad who I know will go on and do well in football and in life in general. He scored our first league goals last season and it was fantastic to watch him represent his country last month in the African Nations tournament.

‘As a friend and as a player we wish him all the best for the future.’

He will be remembered by Stanley fans as the man to score Accrington’s first goal back in the football league at the beginning of last season.

The goal was one of only eight that he scored during his 88 appearances under John Coleman.

Good Luck Rommy.
