"It is always one of the toughest parts of the job saying goodbye to some good players and good people," said manager Jon Brady.
"Everyone played their part this season, even those who may not have played as much as they would have liked helped to create a good atmosphere in the dressing room and every player leaves with our best wishes.
"Some very good professionals are leaving us, we cannot speak highly enough of them and we wish all of the players well for the future.
"Joseph Mills has chosen to retire which we fully understand. He has a young family to look after and has suffered a couple of lengthy injuries during his time here.
"We made him captain when we were first appointed and he helped lead the changing room and was instrumental in bringing the group together. He has been a top professional on and off the pitch during his time here and to fight his way back from the injuries he suffered shows his strength of character. We wish Joseph and his family well.
"We had an excellent season but whatever the circumstances, we fell short by the narrowest of margins. With that in mind, we need to create room in the squad to try and improve and take that next step.
“As we did last summer, we will undergo a thorough recruitment process again and we have already started meeting with players and agents ahead of the new season."
