Notts County have offered professional contracts to three youth team players for next season.
Goalkeeper Liam Mitchell, centre-half Haydn Hollis and midfielder George Nicholas have been offered one year-deals, with the option for a further year.
Lewis Whiteley has been offered a six-month contract taking through to Christmas, when his position will be reviewed.
Lewis Williamson, Alex Troke, Nathan Fox and Reiss Neil have all been invited back for pre-season training but the club have not been able to offer them professional contracts.
Manager Martin Allen said: "We need more time to see these lads and they have time to work hard on their game and their bodies through the summer and they will be involved with the first-team squad for a month with us through pre-season."
