Former Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake leaves AFC Telford United

Sylvan Ebanks-Blake has left National League North club AFC Telford United as manager Rob Edwards looks to balance the budget.

The former Wolves striker, who spent five years at Molineux, joined the Bucks in October and has since scored four goals in seven games.

Telford signed goalkeeper Ben Wilson on loan from Cardiff City until the end of the season and striker Amari Morgan-Smith from league rivals York City on an 18-month deal last week as they aim to climb out of the relegation zone.

As a result, Ebanks-Blake has departed with manager Edwards explaining to the Shropshire Star his reasoning for ending his stay at the club.

“The budget, that’s all that it is,” he said.

“We can’t keep everyone. A lot of our players are on contracts and Sylvan wasn’t one of them. We made a couple of signings last week and we are looking to make a couple more, to strengthen the squad.

“That’s all it is. It was a difficult decision, but one I had to make in the best interest of the football club.”

“His attitude has been first class with us. I wish him well. I went to see Sylvan, to speak to him and explain the decision. I have a lot of respect for him. We played together for a bit at Wolves.

“He’s a very good man and a very good footballer.”
