Gaston - Keep as a number two. At this level he has his positive (and negative attributes) but I think it's time to look towards an upgrade, or at the very least someone to push him all the way.
Brennan - If he's willing to accept a cheap deal and go out on loan as third choice than keep. If not, release.
McGowan - Release.
Russell - Keep (if it can be done cheaply) and look towards loaning him out. He needs to play football to continue his progression, but not at Championship level. If I was Russell, I would be looking towards a fresh start elsewhere, but I still think we should offer him something.
Iredale - Keep. He's been excellent since he's come in, albeit he's still prone to the odd lapse in concentration at left-back. Offers good mobility going forward and is technically sound.
O'Ware - Keep. O'Ware's not had the season I was hoping for and has made mistakes this year. Much like Gaston, I think we need to look to upgrading the centre back positions if we want to progress. He really needs to work on his distribution, and get rid of this habit of blaming those around him for his mistakes.
Lamie - Keep. Lamie's been our best defender this season and offers decent cover at left back. While the lapses in concentration seem to be a thing of the past, he is still a bit too passive for my liking at times. A solid season and hopefully he can improve even further.
Kilday - See what he's like over pre-season and take it from there.
Doyle - Controversial one, but I'd keep him as a second choice but only on the condition that he's not going to be the one providing our width on the right hand side. He's been decent defensively this year, and if we can add some genuine width in front of him then I'm not against him staying as a backup option.
Strapp - Keep him, assess him in pre-season/swordings in the League Cup and decide whether he goes out on loan or not. Looks to have potential but I'd like to see a bit more of him before making my mind up.
Gasparotto - Release. Not good enough.
Harkins - Keep. He's had a good season and should flourish more if we can get more mobile midfielders around him. Full time football has helped improve his physique and has contributed well on the back of that.
Murdoch - Keep. A tidy player who covers ground well and does the basics well. I'd like to see him offer more of a goal threat next season but satisfied with his contributions this season.
Forbes - Release.
Fraser - Keep if possible, but don't break the bank for him. He fancies himself as a Premiership player and I don't think he will be overly keen to drop down to this level permanently.
Tidser - Offer a low wage deal. I like Tidser and I think he would love to stay here, but his effectiveness in a four man midfield is diminishing. Again he's another player that we should be looking to upgrade upon.
Ross - Enquire about another loan. He offers good width and pace, however he needs to add a level of consistency to his game. He's not far away from being a good Championship player and I'd like to see what he could do over the course of 40 games.
Quitongo - An awkward one. Obviously we'd like to have him in the team and playing regularly, but we're not in a financial position to pay a hefty wage to someone we're only going to get 20 games a season out of. I'd obviously offer him something but I wouldn't break the bank to keep him.
Baird - Release. He has decent movement but he doesn't offer enough physically.
McHugh - He's under contract anyway, but I'd release him if he wasn't. Keep him as a backup option rather than shelling money out to get rid of him.
Oliver - Keep. He's improving and contributing more, consistently. If he's going to play behind a main striker then he needs to improve the defensive side of his game, and could still do with adding more goals.
Thompson - Release.
Tiffoney - Keep on a cheap deal. He has pace and the odd good chop inside, but worryingly short of technical ability and has a real lack of game intelligence. He is of use, but shouldn't be a starter.
