Experienced defender Karl Broadhurst has left AFC Telford United without making a competitive appearance for the club.

The 30-year-old signed non-contract terms in the summer, having featured in several pre-season friendlies.

But the former Hereford skipper has not made the 16-man matchday squad since the Blue Square Bet North campaign got under way, with Shane Killock and Liam Murray established as the first choice centre-back pairing.

Club captain Stuart Whitehead is also back in the fold after completing a training course to become a retained firefighter - he was at Saturday's 1-1 draw at Redditch and was hoping to be included for this afternoon's clash with Nuneaton Town.

"I heard from Karl on Friday evening and he's taken a new job which is going to interfere with training and he's going to be working on Saturdays," Sinton revealed.

"That's a big disappointment because we gave him minutes in pre-season games and if I knew that was going to be the case I'd have been looking elsewhere.

"That's one of the frustrations of working at this level and it leaves us a little bit short.

"But Stuart Whitehead was back with us for the first time on Saturday and he'll come into contention - I just need to assess his fitness."

Sinton also admitted he was disappointed by seeing the side's 100 per cent record come to an end at Redditch on Saturday.

"We feel we've let slip two points we should have got, but it's still 13 points out of 15 and I'd have taken that two weeks ago," he said.

"They tried to spoil the game and they got what they wanted - a point.

"We've probably got to be a little better at these sort of places, where the pitches aren't going to be as good as ours or Gainsborough's at this stage of the season.

"We had enough chances to win two games but we didn't work the goalkeeper enough."
