Morecambe: Chris McCready one of four players released

Chris McCready

Morecambe have released four players, including defender Chris McCready, and put two more on the transfer list.

The 32-year-old centre-back will not be offered a new contract, while full-back Robbie Threlfall and midfielders Joe Mwasile and Joe McGee are also leaving.

Defender Tony Diagne and winger Marcus Marshall are available for transfer.

"It is always difficult to release players and I would like to thank all the lads for their efforts," manager Jim Bentley told the club website.

"They are all really good lads. I really wish them well for the future."

Although he has not been offered a new deal, McGee will return to the Lancashire club in the summer to continue his rehabilitation from a cruciate knee ligament injury.

Goalkeeper Barry Roche signed a two-year contract on Saturday.
