GARY Bowyer has vowed to get Valley Parade rocking as his clear-out began with 11 exits.

Only three of the 14 City players now out of contract have been offered new terms – Jermaine Anderson, Danny Devine and Luca Colville. They are all understood to be one-year deals.

Senior pros such as Nathaniel Knight-Percival, Billy Clarke, Paul Caddis and Adam Chicksen head the list of departures.

More are expected to follow in the dressing-room cull as Bowyer looks to move on those that he does not see in his plans for League Two.

The Bantams boss is determined to remould the large squad he took over in March and give the fans something to cheer after the misery of relegation.

He said: “First and foremost, the ones I want to bring in have got to be good people who understand what the fans want. That’s passion, energy, hard work and honesty.

“From what people tell me about these supporters and what I know, if they see that on the pitch and see the fight, they accept it better than if you are the opposite.

“If you haven’t got that, then it’s a God-given right for every supporter to moan and vent their anger at the players and I totally agree.

“I want this place rocking. I want to bring in players who excel in it and want to do it every other weekend and enjoy the big away following because it’s a fantastic football club.

“You’ve got to be able to handle that expectation. I want ones who can thrive on that and it excites and motivates them to perform even better.”

Knight-Percival was Stuart McCall’s first signing in the summer of 2016.

The centre half played 135 times for City, scoring eight goals, but he was sent off in his last appearance at Coventry on Good Friday – his second red card of the season.

Knight-Percival’s exit, alongside that of Clarke and Alex Jones, means there is nobody left from the Wembley squad two years ago.

Clarke returned to Valley Parade on deadline day in January from Charlton, hoping to win a longer-term deal.

But he started only six of his 14 games and scored just once in the final away game at Scunthorpe before going off injured.

Paul Caddis became a solid addition to the squad when David Hopkin signed him as a free agent in November and briefly skippered the side. But he lost his spot at right back once Kelvin Mellor regained fitness.

Adam Chicksen played 51 games in two seasons with City after his first year was hampered by injuries. Like Knight-Percival, he was sent off twice last term and found himself behind Calum Woods in the pecking order for the run-in.

Woods spent most of his short time at the club injured and has also been released as well as back-up goalkeeper Ben Wilson.

Ryan McGowan and youngsters Cameron Hawkes, Callum Gunner and Tom Clare have all gone after finishing the season out on loan.

Tyrell Robinson, who was arrested last year on suspicion of sexual assault, remains suspended while legal proceedings continue.
