3 players released

Maddison, O'Hanlon and Henshall all left after contracts expired. No shock really. Wonder if Alan White made the decision?

Also, Jordan Nicholson has been retained for another year (along with Trotman) which we knew about.

Good news in both

So who is under contract then?

I make it...

Trotman
Burn
Galbraith
Ainge
Wheatley
Nicholson
Thompson
Glover

I'd try and keep Holness and Elliott if possible, and that's about it.

A fair old rebuild required but at the same time there is good quality in most of the few contracted players so a decent base to build from.

We need...a new left side, a good holding midfielder, a competent keeper, a central defender and 2 decent forwards.

Agree it's not a bad start.

Thompson & Nicholson if playing guarantee 20 goals (10 each).

Defence has Galgraith, Ainge and Trotman so not that much work to do their initially.

Goalkeepers seem like we could get one on loan, I would look at Hemming from Boro or someone of that equivalent, saves us money and work trying to find one.

Strikers are the key for us, we really need a goal scorer (say guaranteed 15) and a big strong hold up player (chips in with about 10).

Whoever the new manager is he'll need an eye for a good player and good contacts because we'll largely be having to do what should have been done properly last summer.

The list doesn't mention Wilson Kneeshaw. Does he have a berth for next year?

Kneeshaw doesn't have a contract and one rumour is that he is out until October/November.

Any decision there would be with new manager but if the injury front is true we can't really spend money on someone who may miss a 1/3 of the season and any FA Cup time.

Hopefully Wheatley will be getting his hernia op pronto so we can see the best of him next season. He's a very good midfielder but was badly hampered last season.

Kneeshaw didnt do enough to get a contract next season for me

In a way that's a good thing for us. Nobody else will take him on so you can probably get him in on a 'trial' again for a couple of months before Xmas

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Hopefully scope for the new manager to bring in a decent amount of players plus loans. The defence does need sorting out as our goals against column was shocking last year however it improved towards the end of the season. We need a midfield spoiler as we were too light weight, hopefully we will have a chance at re-signing Holness but no doubt his agent will be trying to sort him out somewhere.
Hopefully Burn will take a second chance with a new manager with both hands.
