Llanelli captain, Antonio Corbisiero, has admitted to Sgorio that he’s played his last game for the Reds.

Following Saturday’s 1-0 win over Afan Lido, Corbisiero, who holds the club record for appearances in the Welsh Premier League, admitted he was leaving Stebonheath Park.

“We’ve had a tough six months here with problems outside of football,” he told Sgorio.

“It’s a shame it’s come to this but I’ve just bought a house and need my money to come in. It’s a difficult situation to be in, I just feel sorry for Bob (Jeffrey) and (Gary) Lloyd to be honest,” he admitted.

“It’s hard to walk away from a club that’s been so good to us over the years … but it’s just come to a stage where it’s not fair on the boys.”

Chris Thomas has already left Llanelli to join Bangor City whilst Cory Jenkins has rejoined Goytre.

And Llanelli manager, Bob Jeffrey, admitted he also expected Chris Venables to leave Stebonheath Park in the next few days.
