The defender is a free agent this summer but has decided to call time on his Glovers career after two years and look for a club closer to his hometown of Carlisle.

Manager Gary Johnson acknowledges Huntington's departure is a setback but has already lined up defensive reinforcements.

Johnson told the club's official website: "Naturally I'm disappointed that Paul has decided to move on but I did feel he would end up moving back up north. He has been away from home for a while now and his expected decision has given me the opportunity to look at other options.

"I am happy with those options and when everything has been agreed and at an appropriate time I will reveal the name of the new centre-half.

"I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Paul for his time at Yeovil and wish him all the best for the future at wherever he continues his career."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
