Airbus UK Broughton have agreed to release striker Chris Simm, who only joined the Wingmakers this summer.

Leading scorer at Bangor City last season, Simm had scored three goals from seven appearances for Airbus this season before receiving a six-match ban from the FAW for alleged racist tweets, writes welsh-premier.comThe 29-year-old striker started his career as a trainee at Wrexham but came to prominence as a prolific striker with Leigh RMI and Hyde, for whom he scored 39 goals in two seasons including a six-minute hat trick on his home debut. He then switched to Southport for whom he scored 19 goals and also had a loan spell with Chorley prior to joining Chester in January 2011. Despite ending the season as joint top scorer with 15 goals, including a hat-trick in Chester’s last game of the season against Marine, Simm was released by manager Neil Young and signed for Bangor, scoring 21 goals in his debut WPL season.

The two Twitter comments were made on Simm’s personal account, one before he joined Airbus.

“Following his suspension, Chris has expressed a desire to make a fresh start in the game and is expected to return to the English pyramid system,” says a statement from the club.

“Airbus has reluctantly accepted Chris’s wish to leave and wishes him well for the future.”
