Notts County publish retained list for summer 2017


Notts County have released their end-of-season retained list, with nine players being released and another nine offered new contracts.

The out-of-contract players who have been offered new deals are Jon Stead, Shola Ameobi, Richard Duffy, Curtis Thompson, Elliott Hewitt, Haydn Hollis, Rob Milsom, Alan Smith, and Mike Edwards.

Meanwhile, the players who have been told they can leave Meadow Lane are Thierry Audel, Adam Campbell, Mark Yeates, Scott Loach, Jack McMillan, Luther Wildin, Wes Atkinson, Montel Gibson and Jordan Richards.

The last three in the above list have however been given the chance to impress Kevin Nolan during pre-season training.

Nolan told the official Notts site: "This is the toughest time of the season for a manager and I haven't enjoyed it one bit. I am, however, confident we have made the right decisions and put fair offers on the table.

"It's never nice to see lads go but it's my responsibility to put what I think are the correct foundations in place for next season.

"I can't fault the efforts of any of the players since I walked through the door and we wish those who are moving on all the best."

Notts chairman and owner Alan Hardy added: "I can't thank this group of players enough for keeping us in the league.

"They all contributed to what was a remarkable turnaround and those who are moving on to pastures new leave with our best wishes and immense gratitude."

Michael O’Connor, Adam Collin, Carl Dickinson, Matt Tootle and Jonathan Forte have contracts beyond the end of the season.

I think Nolan and Hardy have made good decisions here. I just hope we can keep a similar team to last season and just add to the team but unfortunately that is never the case with league 2 football. Only one that looks a 50/50 to me is Adam Campbell, he has scored a few this season and is very quick. However I understand if the wage bill has to be brought down to make way for new players. So as long as we replace well I can't see a problem with any of the decisions made here.
