Llanelli Town striker Lee Trundle departs from Stebonheath Park due to work commitments
Llanelli Town striker Lee Trundle will not be playing in the JD Welsh Premier League after leaving the Reds today.
The former Football League striker was brought to Stebonheath Park by former Neath striker and Llanelli boss Andy Hill two years ago after being persuaded to come out of a four-year retirement.
However, Trundle won’t be returning to the JD Welsh Premier League next season, due to work commitments and travelling. The former Swansea City striker is an Ambassador of the club that he moved to back in 2003.
“Thanks to everyone involved at
@LlanelliTownAFC 2 great seasons 2 promotions and back in the Welsh Premier League but cause of travel and work commitments I will be playing my football elsewhere,” said a departing Trundle on Twitter.
“Good luck and I’ll be down to watch some games and support the boys.”
Last season, Trundle scored an impressive 45 goals in 23 appearances in Division Two, as well as continuing that form into this season, where he scored 21 goals for Reds.
Trundle’s goals helped them to a League and Cup double last season, when they won the Division Two title and the Welsh Football League Cup. This campaign, Llanelli won the Division One title convincingly, beating Haverfordwest County to the title by fifteen points.
The 41-year-old is expected to remain to play in Wales, with a decision made on his future in the next week. Trundle plays for Trefelin Boys & Girls Club Veteran’s side.
