EX­PE­RI­ENCED goal­keeper Ryan Clarke has left AFC Wim­ble­don to sign for Na­tional League club Eastleigh.

The 34-year-old for­mer Ox­ford United keeper had only joined the Dons on a free trans­fer in June af­ter be­ing re­leased by Northamp­ton Town.

His Dons con­tract has been ter­mi­nated by mutual con­sent and he has joined Eastleigh un­til the end of the sea­son.

Dons boss Neal Ard­ley said: “Af­ter lengthy con­ver­sa­tions with Ryan about his fail­ure to set­tle at the club, we have re­luc­tantly agreed to let him move on.

“Ryan is a good guy and a fam­ily man who wanted to do re­ally well for Wim­ble­don, but he felt for per­sonal rea­sons that his fu­ture needed to be at an­other club.”

Mean­while, cen­tre-back Paul Robin­son is con­fi­dent the Dons are now adapt­ing to League One.

“Maybe the tran­si­tion up a level hit us a bit harder than we thought,” said the 34-year-old. “We have def­i­nitely got the tools and play­ers in the squad to do well in this divi­sion.”
