Neil Aspin says midfielder Elliott Whitehouse left FC Halifax Town for full-time football after he joined Nuneaton.

The former Notts County youngster played just three games for The Shaymen before leaving the club last week.

But the Halifax boss says he had a good relationship with Whitehouse and would rather any player who wasn’t happy at The Shay moved on.

“Elliott is a good lad. I’ve no problem with Elliott,” Aspin said.

“He was used to being full-time and he felt that with us being part-time, it didn’t suit him and he didn’t feel he could give his best in the circumstances.

“So as a manager you don’t want people staying if they’re not happy because it’s bad enough with the position we’re in, we need to have 11 players all fighting for the shirt.

“It was agreed he would go to Nuneaton, who although they’re a league below, are full-time and I wish him all the best.”
