Ronnie Henry has brought his time at Southern League Royston Town to an end - but it does not appear to be the end of his playing days.

The Stevenage legend took to social media, penning a letter which was published by the Crows.

He thanked many for his time at Garden Walk, playing the last three seasons, but has now decided to walk away.

He said: "I have made the very difficult decision to leave this incredible football club. It's a decision I promise has been one of the hardest of my career.

"I'd like to thank everyone involved who have made me feel so welcome over the last three seasons - the staff, volunteers, management, players and of course, you the supporters.

"I've had the most unbelievable time and made some friends for life. This club has found a place in my heart and I'll always be a fan, looking out for the results.

"I would like to wish everyone the very best of luck for the future, you truly deserve the best.

"I'd like to give a special mention to Steve Jackson, who has not just been an in credible chairman and a real gentleman from day one, but someone that I have created a special bond with and that I highly respect - thank you Steve.

"I look forward to coming back to Garden Walk to see you all very soon.

"Take care and good luck."

The address gave no mention of what comes next for the 40-year-old, who moved into an academy role after finishing his playing days at Boro in 2019, still holding the position of professional development phase coach with the League One club.

However, Royston manager Chris Watters seemed to let slip that the defender still had a season of football left in him.

Replying to the Royston message on Twitter, he said: "[You were a] privilege to work with. Thanks for the last few seasons and for always giving us everything.

"Enjoy that last season, Ronald."
