National League club Eastleigh have confirmed they will not be renewing the contracts of eight first-team players.

The Spitfires, who reached the FA Cup third round this season, missed out on a place in the promotion play-offs.

Lee Cook, Josh Payne, Lewis Noice, Paul Reid, Kaid Mohamed, Jack Midson, Will Evans and Matt Fanimo have all been released by the Hampshire club.

New deals, however, have been offered to Andy Drury, Jamie Turley, Ben Strevens and Yemi Odubade.

James Constable, Luke Coulson, Ross Flitney, Michael Green, Dan Harding, Ross Lafayette, Joe Partington and Jai Reason already hold contracts for next season.
