Redcar Athletic can confirm popular central defender, Daryll Hall, has requested a transfer.

From a notorious challenge on Sonni Coleman, to a reassuring presence in the heart of defence, Daryll Hall’s short stint at Redcar Athletic looks to be at an end.

The steadfast centre-back has featured 18 times since joining Gary Forster’s ranks amid an injury crisis in March, reaping high esteem from fans and players alike for his commanding performances.

With his vast experience, Daryll has often captained the side, his leadership proving a valuable asset during tough times at the start of the campaign.

As well as his peers, Daryll has earned the respect of first team manager, Gary Forster, who heaped praise on the well-travelled defender.

“He’s been fantastic for us,” the boss said.

“A great player, who’s had a really good career, and an even better bloke.

“He was exactly what the club needed.

Despite disappointment to see Daryll depart the Steelmen, Forster admitted he understood the centre-half’s decision, adding: “Daryll is always welcome down Green Lane.”
