Ian Goodison: Tranmere veteran among five offered new deals

Tranmere Rovers have offered new contracts to five players, including veteran defender Ian Goodison.

Jamaica international Goodison became the first 40-year-old to represent the League One club in November and featured 12 times last season.

Midfielder Andy Robinson, full-back Zoumana Bakayogo, plus goalkeepers Owain Fon Williams and Jason Mooney, have also been offered new deals.

David Amoo, Paul Black, Danny Harrison, Michael Kay and Adam McGurk will leave.

He is a player who has never let me down and his experience is something you cannot buy

"I've had some very difficult decisions to make as the squad has given me everything this season and they are a great bunch of lads," manager Ronnie Moore told the club website. 

"But I need to bring some new players in next season and to do that I have to let some leave. I thank all five for their time at the club and wish them the best of luck for the future.

"If Ian Goodison signs, it will be his 10th season at the club which would be a fantastic achievement. He is a player who has never let me down and his experience is something you cannot buy.

"We have already identified the areas we want to strengthen and have a list of targets and we'll be working hard to bring in the players we need over the summer."

Tranmere, who led League One for much of the 2012-13 campaign, finished 11th in the table.
