Both players have been outstanding for us and they leave with our very best wishes for their futures.“The aim now is to retain as many of the remaining squad as possible and look to add some new faces this summer as we bid to compete at the top end of the Championship and bounce straight back into the top flight.” 1 Paul McShane last_img
