Blue Square Bet South club Farnborough have announced an overhaul of their playing squad as part of the move to move…
….to full-time football for the coming season.
A total of twelve players have parted company with the club after holding discussions with the new management team of Garry Haylock and Gareth Hall.
Bradley Bubb has signed a two-year contract with npower League Two side Aldershot Town.
The agreement for the Grenadian international will also include a sell-on clause should the player be sold in the future in addition to two pre-season friendly fixtures to be held at the Rushmoor Community Stadium.
The first will be held during the forthcoming pre-season campaign on Sunday, 10th July and the second during the pre-season for the 2012/13 season.
Also leaving are James Smith, Steve Robinson, Dale Binns, Daryl McMahon, Jack King, Kezie Ibe, Dean McDonald, Nic Ciardini, Gary Holloway, Owen Price, Jay Conroy and Paul Booth.
The new management team are in discussions with Jay Davies, Craig Braham Barrett, Osei Sankofa, Michael Jordan, Stuart Robinson, Michael Malcolm and Jamie Stevens.
Farnborough chairman Simon Hollis said: “Bradley has played a major part in our success over the past two seasons and his progress is in line with the development policy that we have for younger players. He has a chance to play in the Football League and that is an opportunity that we couldn’t stand in his way for. We wish him and all the other players all the best in the future.”
The club have been holding meetings with a number of players with both Football League and non-League experience and hope to make some announcements over the coming days.
Haylock said: “I would like to thank the departing players for their services, I would have liked to have kept most of them but when changing the playing structure it would be impossible to accomodate those players with day jobs or those who live some distance away.
“Whilst this is regrettable it is also unavoidable, however this then presents opportunities for other players to come in and we are currently negotiating with a varied number of players who have extensive League and Conference experience.”
