I remember watching him at the West Ham game when he looked so good as if that was his natural stage.
A very silky performer who I will miss watching.
Good luck Anthony.

Thanks Strakes and all the best for the future. Always enjoyed watching him play for us and a really useful player.

Some fantastic memories made and he'll always be a bit of a legend for me.

Bring back Chewy!!

Seriously, respect and thanks to Strakes. He always seemed to sparkle as a Shot. He and his foraging runs down the left wing will be missed. He will always have a warm welcome back even if he is in another team's shirt.

Sad to see him leave, excellent for us in both spells with the Shots and rather underused this season. I heard a rumour a while back that he was planning to go part-time so not too surprised about this news. Best of luck Anthony.

The side was better balanced with Anthony Straker in the side.

Thank you for giving us some wonderful moments and Scott some inviting crosses.

He will be tough to replace. Thanks Strakes for gracing the Rec with your silky skills. Shots everywhere will miss you. Good luck wherever you go in life. You'll always be welcome back.

A player who divided opinion - Ancient Shot? I thought he was generally very good and that's probably why his lapses in concentration annoyed people all the more.

There was a bloke giving him dog's abuse at Swindon away during his first spell. I pointed out to him that he wasn't yelling at Jamie Collins, who was hopelessly chugging around the midfield 20 seconds after the ball (Collins left soon after). That was the thing with Straker - even those who weren't his biggest fans acknowledged that he was a decent footballer. If he didn't have his flaws, he would have played League One at least.

Good luck Strakes. Always liked the way you played. Many highlights this spell and before.

And loved it recently when you did not throw the ball back at home to Torquay this season, then took the pee after being abused by their manager.
