Striker James Constable leaves Oxford United after six years
Oxford United can confirm that striker James Constable has declined a new contract with the club and is set to leave the Kassam Stadium.
James, 29, scored 106 times for The U’s after joining from Shrewsbury Town in 2008, just one goal behind the club’s all-time record set by Graham Atkinson. The club offered James a new deal but he today confirmed that he would not be signing. Scoring over 100 goals for a club in this era is a fantastic achievement and we would like to thank James for his hard work and service to the club and wish him well for the future.
Manager Gary Waddock said:
“James has been a great servant to this club and a pleasure to work with. We respect his decision and wish him well as he moves on to a fresh challenge.”
“I have absolutely loved my time at the club and would like to thank everyone for making my time there so special. The fans have been unbelievable and I can’t thank them enough for everything. The club has been a massive part of my life for the last six years and it’s sad to be leaving but now I am looking forward to the next stage of my career.”
