THIRTEEN players have been released by Barrow AFC with plans now underway for the 2021/22 season.

Josh Kay, Chris Taylor and Calvin Andrew have not had their contracts renewed by the Holker Street club and will now be looking for new sides.

Rob Kelly's player-assistant manager Sam Hird and Josh Lillis have seen their playing contracts end too.

But The Bluebirds say they are currently reviewing its backroom staff and will be speaking to Hird and Lillis in the coming days.

Elsewhere, January transfer window signing Mikael Ndjoli has left the club after only four months in South Cumbria.

The forward, signed by former boss Michael Jolley, made only two appearances for the club.

Fellow Jolley signing Dion Donohue will be leaving Barrow too.

Yoan Zouma, brother of Chelsea's Kurt, has joined Donohue out of Holker Street alongside Morgan Penfold, Scott Wilson, Scott Moloney and Callum Gribbin.

Courtney Baker-Richardson, who spent most of the season on loan at National League Barnet, has left by The Bluebirds despite never making an appearance.

Four players have been offered new contracts.

Goalkeeper Joel Dixon and experienced midfielder Jason Taylor have been tabled new deals by the club.

The club's hierarchy are also keen to secure the futures of defenders Brad Barry and Kgosi Ntlhe, with the two both receiving contract offers.

Twelve players will be staying at Holker Street next season.

Bluebirds supporters will be pleased that top goalscorer Scott Quigley, who netted 15 League Two goals during the 2020/21 season, is under contract at the club.

He is joined by fellow forward Luke James and midfielder Jamie Devitt. Patrick Brough, who came up with some important goals during the club's survival last season, will be staying for another season, Barrow confirmed.

They have also confirmed that James Jones, Tom Beadling and Matt Platt will be remaining at Holker Street.

Former Tranmere Rovers players Mike Jones and Ollie Banks are under contract at Holker Street as well.

Connor Brown and Dimitri Sea will be staying at Holker Street after the club activated a one-year clause for both of their contracts.

The Bluebirds will now be looking at bringing in new faces to the club with such an exodus leaving Holker Street.

There will also be a new manager at Barrow next season as caretaker boss Kelly told the club he did not want the job permanently.
