DANNY Scopes was keen to emphasise ‘no-one is bigger than the club’ after allowing Kreshnic Krasniqi to leave Concord Rangers.

The midfielder, who switched to Wealdstone last night, joined the Beach Boys from Isthmian North side Heybridge Swifts in the summer and made an encouraging start to life at the Aspect Arena.

But - after scoring six goals for the National League South outfit - Krasniqi has departed Concord and boss Scopes felt it was the right time to part ways.

“Allowing Kresh to leave was a decision we felt was right for the team and group,” said Scopes, whose side suffered a 3-0 defeat to Chippenham Town last night.

“We left him out of the squad at Hemel Hempstead Town on Saturday and, after chats with him and his agent, we thought he should move on from the club.

“There had been frustration both ways recently and incidents have happened.

“We felt it was best to leave him out of the squad and then the decision was made for him to leave.

“It’s best for all parties that Kresh departs and looks for another option. I think it was the right time to make that call.

“He is one of those characters that becomes really frustrated when he is not playing and we didn’t feel he was going to play as much with the other players in the squad.

“That would have generated more frustration and the club has to come first.

“No-one is bigger than the club and that will always be the case.”

Krasniqi, who counts Billericay Town among his former clubs, made some key contributions during his time with Concord.

The midfielder scored a brace of goals as the Beach Boys overcame National League South rivals Slough Town in their FA Trophy third qualifying round replay.

Concord remain in the national competition and will compete in the quarter-finals for the first time in their history when they do battle with Royston Town on Saturday.

Krasniqi switched to the Aspect Arena after wholesale changes were made during the summer.

The bulk of the playing squad left, along with player-manager Sammy Moore, as Scopes moved into the hotseat.

Scopes, with the help of head of recruitment Adam Drew, welcomed a host of players to the club from Isthmian North outfits and Krasniqi joined from Heybridge.

Despite allowing Krasniqi to leave, Scopes hopes the midfielder will produce the goods elsewhere.

“I want to wish Kresh all the best,” added Scopes.

“He is a very good player and I want him to succeed.

“Hopefully he can learn from this experience with us and use it at Wealdstone to benefit his development.”
