Chester praises 'great servant' Welham

"We offered Kris a deal a number of weeks ago and unfortunately we couldn't come to an agreement," coach Chris Chester told BBC Radio Humberside.

"It's disappointing because I get on very well with Kris and I genuinely think that this has been one of his best seasons here.

"There comes a time when you have got to move on and now is that time. He is a fantastic kid and I'm sure he's got a massive future in the game."
