Former Carlisle United goalkeeper Michael Kelly is back on the move after leaving MK Dons.

The Irish keeper is departing the League Two play-off semi-finalists at the end of his contract.

MK have not awarded Kelly a new deal so he moves on after a season with the club.

The Dons announced their player decisions after missing out on promotion.

They were beaten by Crawley Town in the semi-final, with Kelly playing in the first-leg 3-0 defeat.

Last season's United second choice keeper made 20 appearances for Mike Williamson's side over the course of the 2023/24 campaign.

He is one of five players reaching the end of current deals at Stadium MK, the others being Mo Eisa, Dan Kemp, Warren O’Hora and Ethan Robson.

Kelly offered a parting message on social media after the news of his departure.

He wrote: "A huge thank you to all of the MK Dons fans for this year!

"I know it didn't end the way we all wanted it to, but I'll be forever grateful for being a part of your great club!

"Thank you for the support and I wish you nothing but the best."

Prior to his spell at MK, Kelly spent last season with United after joining the Cumbrians as Tomas Holy's understudy.

He had previously been with Bray Wanderers, and Kelly made three EFL Trophy appearances for United during the campaign.

The 27-year-old was also often described as a positive character behind the scenes in a campaign which ended with United winning promotion through the League Two play-offs.
