After five successful seasons with the club defender Rene Steer has announced he is leaving Maidenhead United.
The left-back was one of the first players to link up with Alan Devonshire after he took over from Johnson Hippolyte in the summer of 2015.
He then played a key role in helping the Magpies to the National League South title in 2017, before helping establish the side in the National League over the past three campaigns.
When fit he was always Devonshire’s first choice left-back and quickly became a fans’ favourite for his committed and assured performances down the left flank. Equally adept in attack or defence he’ll be much missed by supporters and teammates alike.
The 30-year-old announced the news on twitter this morning saying: “Unfortunately my journey at Maidenhead United has come to an end. Over the past five years we’ve been through some ups and downs, wins and losses, but through it all I send my thanks to the fans, players and staff for making it a memorable experience. It may be the end of an era but I am looking forward to my next challenge, wherever that may be.”
Maidenhead United fan Rich Harvey called Steer ‘the glue which has held the team together over the years’.
Teammate James Comley added: “It’s been an absolute pleasure my bro. Going to miss your Monday sessions.”
