Bristol Rovers boss Paul Trollope has parted company with four members of his first-team squad.

Ryan Green, Craig Hinton, Craig Disley and Joe Jacobsen have all been informed that their contracts will not be renewed for the 2009/10 campaign.

Meanwhile, the Pirates have offered new deals to all but one of their academy hopefuls, with James Fraser the unfortunate man to miss out.

Charlie Clough and Charlie Reece have one-year contracts on the table and James Tyrrell six months, while Alex Kite, Mike Green, Ben Swallow and Joe White have been offered month-to-month deals.

It is expected that the majority of the youngsters will be sent out on loan next season in an effort to aid their development.
