Halifax in squad clear-out
Conference-bound Halifax Town have terminated the contracts of all but one of their senior squad.

The cash-strapped club, who finished the season at the bottom of Division Three, have retained centre-back Matt Clarke with a view to selling him to Blackpool.

The action was taken after a meeting on Thursday between the PFA and the club's administrators.

The players will be offered a severance package, which has been partly funded by the PFA.

Manager Neil Redfearn is one of those who has been released but the club are hoping to negotiate a short-term contract to keep him on.

"The board are unanimous in the support of Neil Redfearn and see his appointment with immediate effect as the way forward," a statement on the club's website said.

The club are retaining members of their scholarship scheme until the Football Youth Development Council makes a decision on future funding.
