Owain Fon Williams: Offered a new deal

Owain Fon Williams and Jason Mooney have been given the option of extended stays along with highly-rated wideman Zoumana Bakayogo and veterans Ian Goodison and Andy Robinson.

Goalkeepers Adam McGurk, David Amoo, Danny Harrison, Michael Kay and Paul Black will not be retained, with the latter set to turn out in a reserve match for former club Oldham on Monday evening.

Manager Ronnie Moore told his club's official website: "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.

"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.

"We have already signed five younger players (Max Power, Cole Stockton, Abdulai Bell-Baggie, Danny Holmes and Jake Kirby) to longer deals and James Wallace, Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro, Ash Taylor and Joe Thompson are under contract and hopefully some of those we have offered contracts to will sign in the coming weeks.

"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. We'll be working hard to bring in the players we need over the summer."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
