Manager Gary Naysmith had this to say to ECFC TV on those outgoing players:
“On behalf of everyone associated with Edinburgh City, I would like to thank all of our players that will be leaving us at the end of their contracts for their effort and commitment whilst they have been at the Club. The majority of these players have been with the club for a significant period of time and have played a big part in getting the club to where it is today. I’d also like to place on record my thanks to all the players that joined us on loan at different stages during last season. These players have now returned to their parent clubs and I wish them all well for the future.”
The re-shaping of the squad will continue in the fullness of time; keep an eye out for updates just as soon as we have them!
