Yeovil Town have announced their Released and Retained Lists for the summer of 2019. With the Glovers currently going into the next season managerless, the decisions have been made prior to any new appointment and will see nine players depart the club, whilst only one full time professional in Craig Alcock has been given new terms as an offer. Two Academy players have got contracts on the table, with Nestor Shako and Alex John given the chance of their first professional deals.
The nine players that have been let go have a small caveat in that the club has stated that they will not be offered contracts 'at this time', suggesting that any new manager would be able to perform a u-turn if that player consented to fresh talks. However, by default they are now on the Released list and free to hold talks with other clubs. For the likes of Rhys Browne, Sessi D'Almeida and Jake Gray they will be able to sign for other clubs on a free transfer.
There are a couple of things to note that appear to be changes to earlier thinking. Academy attacking player Nestor Shako had been listed on the LFE Exit Trials website, but it looks as though the club have decided now to offer him a deal. In addition, former Caretaker Manager Neale Marmon and first team manager Darren Way's decisions to sideline Craig Alcock and Carl Dickinson appear to have been rescinded - the duo had not been a regular part of the first team set-up since mid-February, however Dickinson for the moment remains under his current contract with the club, whilst Alcock has earned a reprieve by being offered fresh terms.
The full list of players, and which category they fall into, are as follows:
