Ex-Peterborough United star Marcus Maddison has contract cancelled at National League North club
The 29-year-old joined the National League North side in the summer after spending a period of time away from the game recovering from a knee injury.
He even resorted to crowdfunding to pay for an operation after leaving Spalding United last season.
Maddison only appeared five times for the Step Two club in the league before having his contract cancelled by mutual consent on Thursday (October 13). The club has won all of their last six league games with Maddison being absent for the whole period.
A short Darlington statement said: “
Darlington FC would like to announce that we have agreed to cancel the contract of Marcus Maddison by mutual consent.
“We would like to wish Marcus all the best for the future.”
The Quakers are currently second in the table a point behind King’s Lynn.
Maddison quit professional football for mental health reasons in April 2021 while on loan at Bolton. He has previously announced that he intends to return but has been held back by injury.
Maddison's most successful spell as a player came after he joined Posh from non-league Gateshead in August 2014. He went on to make 249 appearances for the club, scoring 62 goals, before joining Hull City on loan in January 2020.
