Billy Knott has been released by National League South side Chelmsford City
Midfielder Knott joined the Clarets in March 2019 after signing from league rivals Concord Rangers. Knott started his professional career at Sunderland, making 1 Premier League appearance, and then had loan spells at clubs including Wycombe and Port Vale, before joining Bradford City permanently, playing in their famous FA Cup win at Stamford Bridge over Chelsea. He then moved to Gillingham, Lincoln and then Concord.
Knott made 33 appearances, scoring 2 goals for the Clarets, both this season, 1 versus Stanway in the Essex Senior Cup and the other a volley against Havant and Waterlooville in the FA Trophy.
Manager Robbie Simpson said, “Billy is an extremely talented player but he struggled for consistency in terms of fitness last season and therefore I feel we are unable to offer him terms a player of his calibre would expect. He moves on with all our best wishes for the future.”
Chelmsford City have wished Billy the best for the future and thank him for his services over his time at the club.
