CHAIRMAN Darryl Eales declared himself “delighted” with the quality of players retained by Solihull Moors for the 2020/21 campaign.
Fifteen out of contract players have been released, whilst two loan players are returning to parent clubs.
However, nine players remain under contract and the club have entered into negotiations and offered new deals to four more.
Eales said: “This is always a tough time of the year when difficult decisions are taken in respect of players and this is all the more so given the challenging circumstances everyone is experiencing.
“I would firstly like to thank all players who we have released for their contribution to Moors and we wish them well for the future.
“We are delighted with the quality of the group of players who are being retained and we will continue to look to strengthen the squad over the summer. We want to ensure we are ready to go as soon as it is safe to play football and the new season starts.
“We say goodbye with grateful thanks to Nathan Blissett, George Carline, Callum Coyle, Harry Flowers, Terry Hawkridge, Luke Maxwell, Jordan Murphy, Ryan Nesbitt, Jamie Reckord, Shaun Rowley, Matt Stenson, Dan Sweeney, Lee Vaughan, Danny Wright and Andy Wycherley.”
Darren Carter is also out of contract, but the club is hopeful he will remain at Moors.
Contracts have been offered to Ryan Boot, Tyrone Williams and Ben Usher-Shipway. Meanwhile, Football and Education student Melis Bushaj has been offered his first professional contract.
Loan players Geraldo Bajrami and Dan Jones have departed, but James Ball, Jake Beesley, Alex Gudger, Mitch Hancox, Callum Howe, Paul McCallum, Jamey Osborne, Adam Rooney and Kyle Storer are all under contract.
