Cheltenham Town have informed seven players that their contracts won’t be renewed at the end of the season, so they are free to fix themselves up with clubs in January, if deals can be agreed.

A brief statement from the club explained.

‘The club will work closely with these players to find them a new club and have made these decisions early to give the players the maximum opportunity to find a club before the end of the season when there will be thousands of players in the same position competing for contracts.’

The seven players effected are Omari Sterling-James, Jack Deaman, Zack Kotwica, Joe Hanks, James Bowen, Jordan Wynter and Harry Williams and there’s obviously some young names in that list that hopes were had for in recent times.

Manager Gary Johnson said it was obviously a difficult decision to make but he has to not only consider what’s best for the club, but also the players as individuals themselves.

‘It’s a hard decision to make about any player but we are looking to do what is right, not only for the club but also them as individuals so have made the decision now to give them the best possible chance of finding a club.’

The seven players will continue to train at the club ahead of the expiry of their deals or until they find a new club.
