OLLIE Chamberlain is set to leave Taunton Town, the club have confirmed.

The attacking midfielder will depart Wordsworth Drive when his contract expires after making 282 appearances for the Peacocks, scoring 39 goals.

This follows the club's relegation after two seasons in the National League South.

A club spokesperson said: “Taunton Town Football Club regrets to announce the departure of Ollie Chamberlain from the club.

“After discussions with Ollie, he felt it was best for his own career to stay at National League level.

“He leaves after an illustrious career spanning 282 appearances and 39 goals.

“His contributions on and off the pitch have left an indelible mark on the club’s history, and he will be sorely missed.

“The club extends its heartfelt gratitude to Ollie Chamberlain for his unwavering commitment and wishes him the very best in his future endeavours.”

Chamberlain made his debut in a memorial match against Wellington in November 2011, shortly after a tragic crash on the M5 killed seven people.

His first taste of competitive action came against the same opponents in January 2012 in a Somerset Premier Cup clash.

After spells at Bridgwater Town and Wellington, he returned to the Peacocks in 2015 and became a crucial part of the side's midfield as they rose to the sixth tier of English football.

Chamberlain scored five times last season as the Peacocks were condemned to relegation after a season blighted by financial and pitch-related problems.
