Piero leaves Stanley

26 June 2019

Piero Mingoia has today left Accrington Stanley by mutual consent.

The midfielder, who was in his second permanent spell with Stanley, had a year left on his contract but both the club and the player have decided to terminate the deal.

Mingoia first joined the club on loan from Watford in September 2012, with the 27-year-old then signing a one-year contract with Stanley in August 2013.

The Enfield-born midfielder spent three seasons at the Wham Stadium, before joining Cambridge United in June 2016.

Fast forward two campaigns and Mingoia returned to Stanley for the 2018/19 season, with the midfielder spending the second half of last season on loan at Morecambe.

Mingoia made 155 appearances for Stanley across his three spells at the Wham Stadium, with the 27-year-old also contributing with 15 goals and 13 assists.

Manager John Coleman said: "We are sorry to see Piero go.

"He has always been a model professional but his chances have been limited with the form of Sean McConville and Jordan Clark.

"We wish him all the best for the future."

Mingoia said: "I'd like to say a huge thank you to the fans and everybody at the club.

"Unfortunately, last season didn't work out for me and I've now had to make the best decision for me which was to leave the club in search of regular playing time.

"Life decisions also come into it, but the key reason for my departure is my desire to play regular football.

"It has all ended calmly, and it is a decision that I have come to completely by myself."

Everyone at Accrington Stanley wishes Piero all the best with his future career.
