Eleven Released as Walsall Prepare For Life in League Two

Recently-appointed Walsall manager Darrell Clarke has wasted very little time in getting to work as he has opted to release eleven players ahead of a busy summer of recruitment.
Clarke, who penned a three-year deal at Banks's Stadium last week, is likely to have very few days off over the coming weeks as he begins to rebuild the squad following last season's relegation to Sky Bet League Two.

The manager, who enjoyed success at both Salisbury City and Bristol Rovers, has been tasked with rebuilding a Walsall squad which failed to retain the club's long-standing place in the third tier, ending a spell of over a decade in the division.

The Mansfield-born boss, who admitted that he is fully expecting a hectic few months, has opted to allow several of the club's more high-profile players to depart, giving his wage fund a nice boost with plenty of signings needed ahead of August's season kick-off.

Goalkeeper Chris Dunn, defenders Jon Guthrie and Luke Leahy, midfielders Joe Edwards, Isaiah Osbourne, Jordon Sangha and Omar Mussa, wingers Zeli Ismail, Kieron Morris and Tobias Hayles-Docherty and striker Cameron Peters have all been informed that they are free to find employment elsewhere with the manager hoping for something of a clean slate heading into the 2019/20 campaign.

We would like to join the club in wishing all the players the very best of luck in the future whilst thanking them for their effort during their time at the club.
