Released.

I am expecting a few others to follow, Caton and Burgess to name a couple

Personally I think that will be it if those two go. TW at BPA was saying he really only needed 2, maximum 3 players to strengthen.

Can’t see them leaving unless they agree to mutually terminate their deals.

Fully expect them to stay and collect another years wages.

With the departures of Marrs, Mills, Scott and Brown the squad now stands at 19, however this includes Bancroft, Vaulks, Glover and Saunders.

You'd have thought Burgess and Caton would like to play regular football, but I do think it'll be difficult to offload both.

I fully expect Hunter to be given a crack at next season, and that would leave question marks over Portas.

Just to go back to my earlier post, after Brown, Scott and Mills departed it was in the Echo that a 'small number' of contracted players weren't in Wright's plans therefore a retained list was being published this week.

So does it work like this? Contracted player not wanted by the club, he agrees to cancel his contract so doesn't get paid off, but gets to leave on a free thus (presumably) having a better chance of a club coming in for him. Otherwise he sits tight at DFC, picks up his wages but doesn't get any games, and cos DFC would be looking for a fee there's less likelihood of a club coming in for him.

It could work any number of ways.

If a player isn't in a club's plans he could either sit it out and collect his wages for the remainder of is contract. The club could send the player out of loan with the new club paying a percentage or all of his wages (effectively ending his time with the parent club).

Both the club and the player could reach an agreement to end the contract early for an upfront fee to allow him to move to another club on a permanent basis. I am sure a club could even transfer the player to another club with the player getting a fee from the club he's leaving for the difference between the wage he is getting at the new club vs the wage he would have got for staying.

Lots of different ways to work it out, just depends on the player and their situation. Doubtless these will be the conversations that the club will be having with any players who Tommy doesn't feel are in his plans going forward but are still under contract.

Never thought Marrs got a decent run in the side, obviously a good player, who unfortunately didn't to show us his abilities. Good luck Liam wherever you end up.

Didn't he play virtually a full season in 16/17?

Yes, yes he did. In a defence that mostly consisted of Brown, Burgess and Galbraith along with himself, which conceded 71 goals, and which was embarassingly torn to shreds in several matches.

Wonder if we can arrange a deal with Whitby for Burgess, maybe they can have him on a free if they cover the difference in his wages for the last year of his contract.

Can’t really see anyone coming in for Caton so he’ll either sit on the bench all season or mutually terminate his contract and look for a club else where.

Never convinced by Marrs and we have a far better player in Trotman

Caton showed flashes of being a good player at this level and we do need cover/competition for Gillies and Thompson so I do think he'd prove useful as a squad player if he stays on - but by the sounds of it he's an expensive fringe player and not necessarily a positive influence in the dressing room hence why Wright may want to move him on.

More than anything, I think you'll find that Caton doesn't see himself as a fringe player at this level of football and he will not be wanting that scenario.

Ball is in his court then, so to speak. If he's been told he's behind Gillies and Thompson and game time will be limited then he has a choice between agreeing to cancel his contract or proving his worth as a first team player.

Marrs could be converted into a midfield ball-winner. He has a good turn of speed and can tackle, just a bit small to play full back and would love to have some help for Turnbull and Wheatley there. IMO Portas is another player who should be in midfield not the back four.

Got himself a cup winners' medal today, playing for Dunston in the Brooks Mileson Memorial Cup. They beat Bishops 1-0.

The Marrs I have watched the last couple of years didn't have a turn of speed. Solid defender though but not much use in the oppositions half of the field.
