The Cobblers boss on allowing 8 players to leave

Chris Wilder says it was a very tough call before deciding to release 8 players earlier this week.

The Cobblers boss told Leon McSweeney, Joe Widdowson, JJ Hooper, Gary Deegan, Alan Connell, Claudio Dias, Matty Harriott and Ben McNamara they wouldn't be offered new terms and said,  “The group of players have been fantastic but unfortunately tough decisions have to be made for the benefit of the football club.

“I’d like to thank the players for their efforts and if I get a phone call from anyone about any of those players they will all receive an excellent reference from me.

“I’m sure they will all get offers from other clubs and I wish them all the best in their future careers."
