Academy Retained List Finalised
The Academy has announced its retained list following the conclusion of the 2017/18 campaign.
Five of the current crop of second-year Scholars have signed first professional contracts for next season with Josh Thacker, Elliot Holmes, Charlie Andrew, Max Sheaf and Ahmed Salam all stepping up the Under-23 Development Squad on a full-time basis.
However, Mason Wilson-Rhiney will be allowed to leave the Academy following the expiry of his Scholarship deal.
Robbie McKenzie, Tyler Hamilton, Billy Chadwick and Keane Lewis-Potter are already under contract to be part of the Development Squad for 2018/19, whilst Adam Curry and Lewis Ritson have also agreed new one-year deals.
However, the following players will see their time with the Club come to an end when their current contracts expire: James Yates, Will Annan, Ellis Barkworth, Josh Clackstone, Greg Olley, Greg Luer, Charlie Dunkerley, Jonathan Saltmer, Tom Dyson, Liam Edwards, Jonathan Edwards and Ben Hinchliffe.
The Academy would like to thank those players released for their services, commitment and dedication during their time at the Club, whilst also wishing them every success for the future.
