We can confirm that Brendan Kiernan has returned to Walsall after his loan spell with the Mariners came to an end.
The 30-year-old attacker, who could play on the flanks or up front, joined the Mariners last summer and made 28 appearances in the black and white shirt, scoring four goals.
Two of those goals came in this season’s Emirates FA Cup First Round triumph over high-flying League One club Plymouth Argyle.
On his departure, manager Paul Hurst said: “It’s been a tough decision to make but we’ve decided to let Brendan go back to Walsall.
“He’s done well for us over the period of time when he was here on loan, scoring a few goals and playing in a few different positions.
“However, I think we need to freshen the squad up and with limited loans available to us, that’s the decision that we have made. We genuinely wish Brendan well for his future career and thank him for the time he has spent with us.”
