JAZZ Luckie has left Stratford Town to join Chasetown after deciding the time was right to move on.

The striker, who began as youth teamer with Birmingham City, has only made two appearances as a substitute this season and has made a total of 39 appearances, scoring 10 goals. He also had a run-out with FC Stratford two weeks ago.

Luckie has now returned to one of his former clubs, Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division One South side Chasetown.

He had joined Stratford in the summer of 2017 from Redditch United and his CV also includes spells at Alvechurch, Hednesford Town, Stafford Rangers and Tividale.

“I’ve loved being at Stratford, it’s a great club, thanks to the directors and fans for all of your support since I’ve been there,” Luckie told Stratford’s website.

“I’m sad to be leaving but had to do what’s best for me.”

Stratford boss Thomas Baillie said the player left with his best wishes.

Baillie had added to his squad on Thursday by welcoming Shawn Richards from AFC Rushden & Diamonds and Taylor Morrison from Alvechurch.

They will be pushing for their debuts today when Town head to Suffolk to face Needham Market in the Evo-Stik South Premier Central.

Baillie’s men will be looking to extend their unbeaten sequence to 14 matches and victory could leave them within sight of the play-off places.
