Update with the manager

Manager Richie Barker has confirmed that striker Lateef Elford-Alliyu and Shaun Cooper have left the club after their contracts expired at the end of the season.

Lateef joined Reds after he was released by Bury in January and made seven appearances as a substitute.

Richie said: “Lateef didn’t get the opportunities he perhaps deserved because of the form of our other strikers. I have worked with him before and he was a model professional during his time here.

“He is a talented player and I think he will get fixed up with another club but I have told him if he doesn’t get sorted that he can come back here for pre-season training with us.”

The manager also confirmed that Shaun, who spent the second half of the season on loan at Portsmouth, will be leaving the club when his contract expires in June. Shaun made ten appearances for Reds including seven starts.

Richie added: “Shaun had a few problems with injury during his time with us but going on loan to Portsmouth did him good and hopefully he can get fixed up there. We wish him all the best and thank him for his services.”

Aiden O’Brien and Paul Hayes have returned to Millwall and Brentford respectively at the end of their loan spells. Richie said: “Both players have been great to work with and I know they have enjoyed their time here with us and we wish them well for the future.”

Hayes is back at Griffin Park in time for Brentford’s play-off games against Swindon Town.

Richie held discussions with all of the players yesterday before the start of their summer break. As previously announced, one-year contracts have been awarded to goalkeeper Johnny Maddison, striker Jonte Smith and defenders Louis John and Alex Malins.

The manager is continuing to discussions with out of contract trio Josh Simpson, Matt Sparrow and Mustapha Dumbuya.

The rest of the squad are all under contract for next season and will report back on June 26 for pre-season training along with striker Gary Alexander, who completed his loan spell with AFC Wimbledon last weekend.

Maddison signing for another year is good news, thats the reserve goalkeeper berth filled. Be good if muzzy signs but I think thats highly unlikely (someone is bound to offer him more money.)

Still reckon we need another striker, god knows if we can afford one. Confused

I think there are a few championship clubs who will be off-loading strikers to ease their wage bill... we need to track local-ish clubs... that is with the proviso that potentially either Palace or Brighton could be in the Premier...

..certainly the likes of Reading, Southampton & Charlton are worth monitoring.

Paddy Madden at Yeovil has shown that there are still a few gems to be unearthed and I guess a few clubs might notice the return we got from young Procter.

Yes please... just what we need... a strong beast who is good in the build-up and can get a few goals... and lest we forget the likes of him and Grant Holt were playing at our level not that long ago.

Young Maddison is never going to challenge Paul Jones for the number one shirt is he?

Paul Jones needs better competition to keep him "on his toes",

Did he need to be kept on his toes this season then?

I'd rather we spent the money on a forward.

Am I right in saying that Paul Jones played every minute of every game of the season.

League games - i believe so.

Other games - i thought he was subbed in a SSC game or similar to give Maddison / Kuipers time - maybe missed some altogether.

I'm actually rather disappointed Cooper has gone. Was very impressed with him on the rare occasions he played here, and by all accounts he was very good at Pompey. Has versatility and could have played the DM role, a position where really we only have Bully at the moment.

Ah well, I'm sure Richie has his reasons.

My guess is he wasn't cheap.

Something to do with RB's prefence to building a team based on younger players maybe? Shame it's not worked out. With Cooper being versatile he seemed comfortable playing in any position really. Best of luck to the player, no doubt he will get fixed up again soon.

Dead right, Maddison is a cheap cover for Jones, we need to careful where we spend our money. Our problem this season was GOAL's end of story, the defense with Fadz back and if Muzzy stays is solid.

Interesting though, I missed the announcement on Maddison. I thought he was just on loan from Sunderland, did we actually sign him, is he actually a Crawley player ?

Can't really understand the situation with Lateef E-A, if he isn't up to the mark then why did RB bring him here knowing him from first hand experience, if he was good enough to sign then why release him now, it's not as though we have a long queue of strikers
