BEN Strevens said he regrets not being able to leave Wycombe on a high.
The 31-year-old striker was released by Wanderers yesterday after two years and 83 appearances for the club.
He was one of six players to leave Adams Park in a summer reshuffle but insists he has no hard feelings about his departure and only a regret that he could not leave with Wycombe in League One.
He told the Advertiser: “I was disappointed but I know the gaffer has some tough decisions to make this summer. I respect him and we left on good terms. He wished me all the best and I wish him and the club all the best too.
“It is a bit sad that I am leaving after we have been relegated. My aim to was to get us into League One and help us stay there so it is a shame I can't go out on a high.
“Like all players, there will be some fans who will be pleased to see me go because I didn't score as many goals as I would have liked. But I have had a lot of nice messages from fans and, to be honest, I expected that because it is such a great, family club.
“I have really enjoyed my two years. Hopefully, I can get myself sorted quickly and maybe play against them next season.”
Strevens, who scored 11 goals in his time at the club, admits his three goals in the final two games of their 2010/11 League Two promotion-winning season were obvious highlights.
“Looking back at the Bury game and that end of season run has to be the best moment for me,” he said. “To be honest that whole promotion season was a highlight for me in my career.”
