Stockport County have released nine players after clinching promotion to League One.

The list of departures is headed by striker Adam Proudlock, who scored 10 goals last season.

Long-term injury victim Rob Clare is also leaving Edgeley Park, ending his second spell with the club.

Chris Adamson, Adam Griffin, David Poole, Dan Ellis, Chris Coward, Craig Flowers and Amari-Morgan Smith are the other players to be released.

Manager Jim Gannon told BBC Radio Manchester that the club's youth policy had to come first.

"Our young players have all grown into becoming first-teamers," he said.

"I just hope the club's ambition can match where some of these young lads like Tommy Rowe and Liam Dickinson are going to go because some of them are destined for great things."
