Retained List: Six depart Shielfield Park

Berwick Rangers can confirm that Kevin Walker, David Verlaque, Michael Dunlop, Renne Donkor, Ricardo Leao Kessels and Euan Bauld have all left the club following the expiry of their contracts. The club would like to thank the players for their service to their club and wish them the best of luck in their future careers.

Steven Notman will return for his 10th season in Black & Gold.

Loan players Euan Spark, Greg Page, Sean McKirdy and Aaron Murrell all complete their deals with the club and return to their respective parent clubs. Berwick would like to thank the players for their contribution and again, wish the four the best going forward.

The club are delighted to have agreed new terms with Greg Rutherford, who played a key part after joining the club back in December 2016, netting 10 goals in just 6 months with the club.

Pat Scullion and Gary Phillips also turned in a number of impressive performances after joining the club after the season got under way, and boss John Coughlin has moved to tie the pair down to new deals.

Manager John Coughlin is also currently in negotiations with last season’s top scorer Steven Thomson, who is also out of contract soon.

Lee Hamilton remains in negotiations with the club. The defender’s season was ended prematurely due to injury, but the young hard-hitting defender generally impressed in his first season of regular senior football.

Sean Brennan, Kevin McKinlay, Robert Wilson, Jonny Fairbairn, Steven Notman, Michael McKenna and Darren Lavery all signed two year deals last summer, and remain under contract with the club.

Elsewhere, the boss has promoted youth player Jack Cook from the Development Team after a successful season, and is currently in negotiations with fellow youngsters Daniel Watt, Calum Helm and Jordan Orru about a potential return next season.

The manager is also speaking to a number of transfer targets. The club will deliver news of any new additions as soon as they are made official. An update on the development team will also follow.
