Macclesfield Town release 21 players following relegation

Matt Hamshaw

Macclesfield Town have released 21 players, including midfielder Matt Hamshaw, as they prepare for life in non-League football next season.

Hamshaw, 30, joined the Silkmen from Notts County in 2010 and made a total of 77 appearances for the club.

Club captain Paul Morgan, Jose Veiga, Dwayne Mattis and Jon Bateson are also among those allowed to depart.

Of the players at the end of their contracts, only midfielder Ross Draper has been offered a new deal.

Top goalscorer George Donnelly left Macclesfield to join Rochdale earlier this month for an undisclosed fee.

New manager Steve King, who was appointed on Monday, has 12 senior players still under contract at the Moss Rose.
