Devlin ends stay at Tamworth
Paul Devlin

Tamworth have severed their ties with former Watford and Sheffield United midfielder Paul Devlin, citing "mutual consent" as his manner of departure.

Devlin, 34, signed for the Lambs last month and within that time made four appearances for the Conference side.

The release came after the former Scotland international had admitted that he was unable to commit enough time to the club and thought it the right decision to move on.

The departure of such an experienced player is a major blow for Tamworth, who currently sit in 20th position in the table despite Tuesday's well-earned 3-3 draw at Aldershot.

Devlin has been somewhat of a nomad over his career with spells at Stafford, Notts County, Birmingham City, Sheffield United, Walsall, Watford and finally Tamworth.

His biggest move came when he signed for Birmingham from Notts County in early 1996 for £250 000. Since then he has been a regular loanee and hasn't been able to fetch such a sum on any of his other moves.

He has made 591 career appearances notching up 105 goals along the way.
