Stuart set for Grays exit - Edwards

Grays Athletic

Grays Athletic centre half Jamie Stuart is likely to leave Bridge Road, says manager Craig Edwards, with player and club "miles apart" on a new deal.

"We've spoken to Jamie [about a new contract] but at the moment we're miles apart. I think he's looking elsewhere and so are we," Edwards told BBC Essex.

"We haven't closed the door on it. Only time will tell whether the situation will change," he added.

Stuart, 32, has been a regular since joining Grays from Hornchurch in 2004.

Edwards, who took over at the Blue Square Premier club in May, says he is in no rush to make signings.

"I've just got the PFA list of available of players and there's a huge number to choose from," he said.

"There are some quality players out there and no need to rush."
