Head Coach Rehanne Skinner said: “It has been a challenging season for everybody, not least due to the pandemic, and I cannot fault the effort, commitment and attitude all the players have shown to get us into the position we have reached both in the league and FA Cup.
“We have had to make some difficult decisions and it is never easy saying goodbye to players. They are fantastic people who have been exceptional to work with. I would like to thank all the players who are departing for their efforts and we will always be here to support them with anything we can do in the next stage of their careers. We are on a journey and every player who has been part of it so far has made a tremendous contribution to where we are now as a Club.”
The Club would like to thank each player enormously for their contributions during their time with us and we wish them the best for the future.
