Kevin Horlock, manager of Bostik North club Maldon & Tiptree, is continuing to re-build his first team at Park Drive
The exodus has continued as five more players have departed.
As reported on this site last week, commanding central defender Billy Roast has departed the club to test himself at a higher level with Vanarama National League South outfit Concord Rangers, who are currently managed by ex-Maldon defender Adam Flanagan.
Joe Claridge and Adam Mills have both left Park Drive to team up with former team-mate Rhys Henry at new league rivals AFC Sudbury, while goalkeeper James Behan and midfielder Jeremiah Kamanzi have also departed Park Drive.
Behan, who joined the club in July 2016, has been released after his contract expired.
Kamanzi, who joined the club in July 2016, went on to appear thirty-five times for The Jammers last season.
Want to say a huge thank you to everyone @MaldonTiptreeFC such a memorable first season in men's football,and best of luck for the future❤️

However, club captain, Matt Lock has put pen-to-paper for another season.
Lock, who was influential in last year’s promotion chase, has agreed another one-year deal to stay on at Park Drive which will be his third season in a row at Maldon & Tiptree.
Lock appeared forty-nine times for The Jammers last season as he led Horlock’s side to a second place finish in the Ryman Division One North.
Horlock has also confirmed the retention of several key, with Curtis Haynes-Brown, Gavin Greenfield and David Levey all signing on the dotted line ahead of the 2017/18 season.
