SCUN­THORPE man­ager Brian Laws in­tends to set his six out-of-con­tract play­ers a dead­line over where their loy­al­ties lie once the Iron have a new chair­man.

The dis­pute over who owns the club is set to go on for an­other fort­night and Jimmy Ryan, Michael Collins, Ed­die Nolan, Tom Newey, Matt God­den and James Severn are the play­ers in ques­tion.

Laws claims all six would like to stay at Glan- ford Park but ac­knowl­edges that he would be sur­prised if they all stay as the club looks set to slash its wage bill.

Laws said:“When it comes to how long play­ers want to make their minds up, if they don’t know now if there are any of­fers on the ta­ble then I’d be sur­prised.

“We will set them a dead­line. Once the chair­man­ship is sorted we’ll sit down, de­cide the of­fers we are go­ing to make and put a time scale on it. It won’t be long.We might give them a week or so.

“The big ques­tion I asked when I spoke to them last week was:‘Do you want to stay?’The feed­back we’ve had has been very pos­i­tive. Credit to them for that.”
