Manager Mark Yates has confirmed that he has made his choices for our playing squad for next season.

Four senior players will be released as their contracts expire and only Scott Brown, Steve Elliott, Joe Hanks and Jermaine McGlashan have been offered new deals.

The offer to Elliott is a combined player/coach role and will see him work alongside Yates and the other backroom staff as he learns that side of the game.

Cheltenham do have seven players under contract already for next season and four second year scholars have been offered pro terms.

Jason Taylor is one such player under contract, but he has been placed on the transfer list with immediate effect.

All players have now been spoken to with regards to their futures other than Jamie Cureton who is currently on a course, and Connor Roberts will see a decision made on his future at a later date.

The retained list in full reads.

Released – Sido Jombati, Sam Deering, Ed Williams, Ashley Vincent.

Contract offers – Scott Brown, Steve Elliott, Joe Hanks, Jermaine McGlashan.

Listed – Jason Taylor.

Academy pro contracts – James Bowen, Adam Powell, Harry Williams, Bobbie Dale.

Players already contracted for 2014-15 – Craig Braham-Barrett, Troy Brown, Matt Richards, Jason Taylor, Zack Kotwica, Byron Harrison, Terry Gornell.
