BANTAMS defender Stephen Darby has not been offered a new contract and will leave the club when his deal ends next month.

Along with Joe Cracknell and James King, the experienced right-back has not been named on the club's retained list.

City's remaining out-of-contract players – Mark Marshall, James Meredith, Rory McArdle, Matt Kilgallon, Rouven Sattelmaier and Tony McMahon – have all been offered new deals.

Meanwhile, loanees Alex Gilliead, Josh Cullen, Kevin Toner, Matthew Penney and Jordy Hiwula have returned to their parent clubs.
