Gloucester City forward Joe Parker has joined National League North rivals Leamington for an undisclosed fee, the club have confirmed.  

Parker, who first made his appearance for City in 2012, had previous loan spells with Bishops Cleeve, Shortwood United and Cinderford Town during his time at the Tigers, whilst also enjoying an 18 month spell with Football League side Newport County.

In the announcement on the Tigers’ website, the club confirmed that Parker had requested to leave the club a couple of weeks ago and after receiving a bid from Leamington, the two sides have come to an agreement.

The news will likely continue to divide the Gloucester City fans after the news that broke over the weekend that long serving defender Sam Avery had been released.
