The 17-year-old joins Billingham Town on a permanent deal.

Redcar Athletic can confirm the departure of James Sayer following almost a year at the club.

The young midfielder finds pastures new in Northern League Division Two, swapping Green Lane for Bedford Terrace in a permanent deal with Billingham Town.

James made 26 appearances in his twelve month tenure with the Steelmen, netting four goals in competitive fixtures, and a further three in pre-season.

Redcar Athletic would like to place on record its thanks to James for his efforts over the past year; his tenacity showed no bounds, and the club has no doubt his career will be a great success.

Best of luck with the Blues, James.
