Many thanks, Alan -

It could well be Clubiona diversa, I think. The spider was determined to move around, so was tricky to photograph.

Could be

C. diversa looks a possibility, though I don't know much about it. Didn't mean to be critical of your photography - I know what it's like taking pictures of spiders. But to distinguish clubionids from gnaphosids it's useful to see the spinnerets or eyes in close up.
