Manager Keith Hill and Rochdale have now made their decisions on our initial playing staff for the coming campaign.

Jamie Allen, Joe Bunney, Callum Camps, Ashley Eastham, Ian Henderson, Scott Hogan, Oliver Lancashire, Joel Logan, Matty Lund, D’Arcy O’Connor, Michael Rose, Scott Tanser and Peter Vincenti all remain under contract for the coming season and the manager has offered new terms to Matty Done and Josh Lillis.

We also hold options on a number of players and the club will enact these for Rhys Bennett, Bastien Hery and Joe Rafferty.

George Donnelly also has an option in his existing deal, and both he and the club are discussing this still.

Player/coaching staff members, Brian Barry Murphy and Steve Collis have also been offered fresh terms as their existing deals expire this summer.

However, Godwin Abadaki, Peter Cavanagh, Reece Gray, Craig Lynch, George Porter and Robbie Thomson will not be offered new deals and will leave the club officially when their contract expire this summer.

Our loanees Graham Cummins, Jason Kennedy and Jack O’Connell have all returned to their parent clubs.

18 year old Andy Cannon has also been offered his first professional deal with the club as he is currently a second year scholar. He is the second of that crop to be offered a deal, as Callum Camps was the first.
