Yussuf made 101 league appearances while Mitchel-King played 47 games over two seasons and they join Pim Balkestein, Chris Hussey, Stacy Long, Curtis Osano, Jason Prior, Louis Harris and Kelly Youga in departing the club.

And Ardley admitted he made some tough decisions.

"That is the disappointing part of my job because all of them have been hard-working and have had a fantastic attitude," he told the club's official website.

"It's sad, but that's football, and if you are trying to progress and shape the team the way you want it, when these things have to happen.

New contracts have been offered to John Sullivan, Luke Moore, Charlie Strutton and Kevin Sainte-Luce while Mikhael Jaimez-Ruiz will hold discussions with Ardley about his future when he returns from holiday.

"We have made offers to those players because we feel they can play a part in us moving forward," Neal added.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
