Bracknell Town have confirmed via the Bracknell News that they have released three players from their squad.

Carl Garstang, Phil John and Rob Gerrard have all been allowed to depart by Robins bosses Jeff Lamb and Paul McGrotty.

The News reports that all three players had been told their chances at Larges Lane would be limited – particularly with the recent additions of Ryan Parsons and Adam Kirby.

The three players were new signings this season and McGrotty said: “We have had three or four weeks to look at them. We had chats and explained to them their opportunities might not be what they want here and and they can go and look elsewhere.”

Lamb and McGrotty had recently allowed Jon Bennett, Khalid Senussi and Alex Rodrigues to join Combined Counties Premier Division side Godalming Town on dual registration – though all three have featured at Larges Lane since then.

Former Camberley Town defender Garstang played seven times for the Robins scoring one goal – albeit a spectacular volley in the 6-2 FA Vase win over Buckingham Athletic.
