Swifts told fans: "'We can announce that Darren Phillips has left the club. Darren has received a significant incentive to join Isthmian South East Division club, Faversham Town, which he has decided to accept.
"We would like to thank Darren for his services and we wish him all the best."
Phillips joined Swifts in October 2021, and this season he had made 32 appearances as his side had a magnificent run in the FA Trophy and climbed to third place in the League.
He has also weighed in with an impressive eight goals, including two in a thrashing of his former club, Tilbury.
