Northwood's longest serving player Dwane Williams has left the Ryman League Division One north club.
Woods boss Dave Anderson has released midfielder Williams, who made 103 appearances and scored six goals during his stay at Chestnit Avenue.
Williams was named Players' Player of the Year in 2007 but new boss Anderson felt he was unable to offer him a regular place in the side in the future and has given him the opportunity to move on.
Northwood took Ryman Premier promotion-chasers Staines to extra-time in Tuesday's (27/1) Isthmian League Cup Fourth round tie at Wheatsheaf Park before losing out 5-2.
Two Scott Taylor goals in the first half put Staines in control before Hugo Figueiredo pulled one back shortly before the interval.
Kyle Matthews equalised for Woods to take the tie into extra time but, goals from Howard Newton, Leroy Griffiths and Dave Sargent saw Staines finally win 5-2.
