Being released from a club can impact some of the younger players very hard, hopefully, the club are on hand to support them both in securing another club, improving their education for the prospect of employment along with any mental health aspects.

Lo-Tutala is the surprise name among those who have been released, given his involvement in first team training – he appeared to have more of a future than the likes of Alfie Whiteman.

We would like to wish all these youngsters the best for the future.
