LEE HARRISON says he will not quit as Hayes & Yeading goalkeeper while he can still help the club survive relegation.
The 39-year-old ex-Barnet goalkeeper completed 90 minutes for the first time since October 30 in Saturday's 3-1 FA Trophy exit at Ebbsfleet.
Harrison's comeback season after a spell concentrating on goalkeeping coaching at Barnet and Dagenham & Redbridge has been dogged by a thigh injury.
But he insisted that hanging up the gloves has not crossed his mind.
“Never,” he said. “I want a run of finishing games now all the way through the season and helping the lads through.
“We will then decide on the back of that because if I was the manager looking at it then I have missed too many games as it stands at the moment.
“It was nice to play the second-half for the first time in six weeks. I had a thigh injury and because I had scar tissue it struggled to get better. But I have been working with the physio here and I have a programme at Dagenham. I will stick to that and hopefully stay injury-free.”
Hayes & Yeading now face a crucial trip to Gateshead on Saturday for their survival hopes and Harrison added: “It is disappointing to go out of the Trophy, but the big thing is Gateshead now. “We are in that group of 10 clubs that can all go down and we do not want it to be us.”
