Gloucester City midfielder Lewis Hogg is set to leave the club.\r\n\r\nHogg, who was signed in 2012, has suffered from back problems for the last year, but only in recent weeks has the club’s away travel taken its toll on the battling midfielder, and he leaves with a heavy heart.\r\n\r\nA former captain of Bristol Rovers, Hogg has been a mainstay of the club’s midfield since joining and has become a fan’s favourite due to his passionate and tenacious displays.\r\n\r\nLewis will continue to play locally in the Bristol area, where he lives, but the Tigers will retain his registration. Overall, Hogg made 78 appearances for the club, scoring eight times.\r\n\r\nManager Tim Harris is sad to see Hogg leave the club, but believes it is the best option for his continued health.\r\n\r\n”On behalf of everyone at Gloucester City I would like to thank Lewis for his commitment to the club over the last few years and his honesty over the situation he finds himself in.\r\n\r\n”Playing locally without the strenuous rigours that the Conference North demands  let alone the travel aspect will hopefully allow Lewis more recovery time.”\r\n\r\nHogg has expressed his gratitude to the fans  and has wished the club the best for the future.\r\n\r\n“I would like to thank everyone for the excellent support I  have received since I arrived at the club and hopefully this decision will allow me to carry on playing football on a local basis.\r\n\r\n”I would like to wish everyone at the club the very best wishes for the future and particularly a week Saturday in the FA Cup tie against Forest Green Rovers.”
