Colchester United have released a number of players that are out of contract this summer.
Having finished the 2020/21 season on Saturday with a draw that saw a twentieth place finish in League Two, the U's have released their retained list for the 2021/22 campaign.
New Head Coach Hayden Mullins said of the first step towards putting together the U's squad for 21/22: "There’s not many we’re retaining for next season and there is an exciting opportunity for some new players to come in. There’s going to be a fair bit of movement this year."
"It’s a great opportunity to get some really good players in the door. There’s a lot of work that’s been going on behind the scenes - and it’s not just the last week, it’s been happening for a while.
"We’ve got our targets, we want to get the right ones, the key ones, and we want to make it happen."
