Huddersfield Town Football Club have today announced they have paid up former Chester City striker Luke Beckett’s contract after reaching an agreement with the player.

Contracted until the summer of 2009, Beckett had requested to leave the club for personal reasons and his desire to play first-team football.

Despite leading the way on goals for the past two seasons, the 32-year-old has struggled to figure this term, with just three first-team appearances under his belt.

Speaking after his decision to leave Town, Beckett said: ‘It’s a good move for the club and a good move for me.

‘I’ve been a bit disgruntled with the situation for a while and I’ve been trying to get away on loan, but nothing has really come up.’

Beckett will play part-time for Conference North outfit Gainsborough after rejecting a loan move to Bournemouth due to extensive travelling.

‘I’m going to Gainsborough until the end of the season and I’ll see how it goes. You never know what will happen in football, but it’s good for me at the minute,’

Everyone at Vital Chester City wishes Luke Beckett well in his future footballing career. If only he was back at the Deva Stadium, he could probably still do a job for us in League Two!
