EIGHT TO EXIT AS ROVERS RE­BUILD

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Jack Miller

BRIS­TOL Rovers man­ager Dar­rell Clarke has an­nounced a list of play­ers that will be re­tained by the club – and those head­ing for the exit door.

For­wards El­lis Har­ri­son and Rory Gaffney, de­fend­ers James Clarke and Al­fie Kil­gour plus mid­fielder Ryan Broom have all been of­fered new con­tracts and are set to pull on the Pi­rates jersey again next term.

But Clarke will have to re­cruit hard once again this sum­mer after a to­tal of eight play­ers were con­firmed to be leav­ing the Me­mo­rial Sta­dium.

Goal­keeper Will Puddy, de­fend­ers Bob Har­ris and Danny Greenslade, mid­field­ers Cris­tian Mon­tano, Jake Gosling and Do­minic Thomas, and for­wards Jer­maine Easter and Jamie Lu­cas will be re­leased when the sea­son con­cludes to­day.

Clarke said: “It’s al­ways dif­fi­cult to make de­ci­sions such as this.

“I have been do­ing it for a num­ber of years now and it doesn’t get any eas­ier.

“As far as the play­ers who have not re­ceived an of­fer are con­cerned, I would like to say they have been a credit to them­selves and the club while they have been with us.

“They have worked in­cred­i­bly hard and have al­ways given their best. I wish them all ev­ery suc­cess for the fu­ture.”

OF­FER: El­lis Har­ri­son
