After 6 years loyal service Welshman Byron Anthony has been released and according to reports he has a number of suitors. He's been a top servant to this club and departs with the respect of all Gasheads, something Mark McGhee acknowledges. I'd like to add my best wishes to the 'Lord' in the rest of his career, hopefully he can return to the Mem (or the UWE) one day and receive a warm Gas welcome for his efforts.
Alongside Anthony's departure is forward Scott McGleish who has been with the club since last summer, goalkeeper Lance Cronin, defender Michael Boateng and academy products Charlie Reece, Charlie Clough, Lamar Powell, Darren Jeffries and James Dale. Kayne McLaggon has not been offered a new deal as yet but has been invited back to pre-season training and will be given every chance to prove he's worthy of a contract.
Combining his thoughts today with what he said on Tuesday and I think it's safe to assume recruitment will be busy this summer. I hope MM doesn't bottle out of making the improvements that we need to really push on at the top of this division in 2012-2013 because I believe we have a successful year if we strengthen adequately.
Up the Gas!
