Defender Chris McCready is one of four players to be released by Sky Bet League 2 side Morecambe.

The 32-year-old, who has been with the Shrimps since 2010, will leave the club along with f ull-back Robbie Threlfall and midfielders Joe Mwasile and Joe McGee.

Meanwhile winger Marcus Marshall and defender Tony Diagne have been made available for transfer.

Manager Jim Bentley told the club's official website: "It is always difficult to release players and I would like to thank all the lads for their efforts.

"They are all really good lads and I really do wish them well for the future.''
