OLLIE Harfield, one of Weymouth’s longest-serving players, has announced his exit from the Terras.

Left-back Harfield, 24, registered 20 assists in 124 games for the club across a three-year period.

Of the players to finish the ill-fated 2021/22 Vanarama National League season, only Ben Thomson (255) and Brandon Goodship (135) have played more games.

Harfield was a crucial part of the Weymouth side that won promotion to the National League under Mark Molesley.

Ex-Bournemouth full-back Harfield has been strongly linked with a move to Aldershot, reuniting with Molesley, but has one year remaining on his contract.

Echosport understands Weymouth agreed to let the contracted Harfield leave without pursuing a fee.

Announcing his departure on social media, Harfield said: “My time at Weymouth has come to an end.

“A tough decision for me to make but one that I feel is an important step going forward in my career.

“I’ve loved my three years at the club. We’ve experienced a rollercoaster of emotions together.

“Would like to thank all the brilliant fans for making me feel so welcome from the start. Your support home and away was always massively appreciated.

“Would also like to thank past/present managers and staff on and off the pitch. All the best in the future. OH#26.”

Harfield becomes the seventh Weymouth player to leave the club this summer, with Ross Fitzsimons, Taofiq Olomowewe, Ben Morgan, Martell Taylor-Crossdale, Jordan Greenidge and Josh Leslie-Smith already offloaded by the Terras.
