Are thinking of Bobby Carroll mate, the only Collins I recall was a defender Michael Collins who didn’t progress from the U18s a couple of seasons ago. Certainly Carroll has lost just about all the last two seasons , he looked very talented in his first year , but it’s tough decisions time for him.U18s out of contract at the end of the season McIntyre, Lowey, Thompson and Higgins can't see any of them being offered contracts. Maybe Lowey and Higgins but with 9 players from that group already needing to be u23s and the players from the year below who have already made the leap it looks unlikely. I believe Davidson has already retired.
U23s out of contract Hansen, Barrett, John, Astley, Ouzounidis, Anderson, Collins. So far I believe John and Astley have been offered new contracts I would probably give Anderson another year as he is versatile and Small may get fast tracked. Hansen and Barrett are behind Tyrer and Leban and with Virginia possibly playing the occasional game I can't see any benefit in keeping them. Ouzounidis is now of an age where he needs to play first team football or he'll lose that competitive edge. Collins has just been unlucky with injuries but has lost so much development time I can't see him making it here. If he's still able to play will probably have to drop down a couple of levels and try and rebuild from there.
Older u23s out of contract Connolly, Pennington, Adeniran, Bowler, Broadhead. I might be tempted to offer a one year contract to either Bowler or Broadhead but would probably just release all 5. That will leave us with just Baningime and Markelo who both have a year left. I would try and get something for these 2 but failing that out on loan they would go again.
Dylan Thompson was having a trial at Newcastle recently so he’s being allowed to find another club.
