Dinning to consider Rangers future

Stafford Rangers midfielder Tony Dinning will consider his future at the club this week after being dumped on the bench for the last game.

Stafford Rangers midfielder Tony Dinning will consider his future at the club this week after being dumped on the bench for the last game.

The veteran was left out of Saturday's 2-2 draw with Fleetwood as Rangers went 4-4-2 with new signing Ross Davidson playing alongside Tom Thorley in the middle, as boss Chris Brindley opted for a change in direction after a disappointing defeat to Ilkeston.

That as not sat well with Dinning, who feels the scapegoat for that loss and has not received an explanation for his omission from the team.

And the 35-year-old, who turns 36 next month, would rather leave Marston Road than sit on the bench.

He said: "I am very disappointed to be left out, and I don't see why I should be made a scapegoat for a poor result against Ilkeston.

"At my age I don't have long left in football and I can't afford not to play. I am there trying to do a job with Stafford Rangers and I can't do that, what is the point?

"I would like to stay because I love being a part of the club and I do want to carry on, but this is my last couple of years as a player and I need to be in the team.

"I will wait until the end of the season and see what comes up."
