Mansfield Town have allowed eight out-of-contract players to leave Field Mill.
Manager Peter Shirtliff is keen to bring in a number of reinforcements in the summer but has to let others go before that will be possible.
Goalkeeper Kevin Pressman is one of the biggest casualties, along with Rhys Day, Gus Uhlenbeek and striker Adam Rundle.
Also leaving are Jason Talbot, Fraser McLachlan, Kyle Jacobs and Allan Russell.
The other members of The Stags' squad whose contracts have expired have all been offered new deals and have until May 20 to agree to new terms.
"I have been happy with what they have done for me and the club so I wish them well for their future careers," said Shirtliff on the club's official website.
"I am moving in a different direction now so I cannot see the point in keeping a player hanging on if there isn't much chance of them getting first team football.
"I have offered new deals to all the other players that are out of contract."
Meanwhile, the Mansfield boss has offered a permanent deal to Laurence Wilson, who was on loan at the club from Everton and has since been released by The Toffees.
However, Chester City are also interested and are thought to have offered the youngster a deal.
"I offered Laurence a deal," he added. "I like him and wanted to keep him at this club but there is talk that he has chosen to sign for Chester.
"I am disappointed but if he has signed for them there is nothing I can do about it now"
