Andy, who turns 35 during next season, has been offered a two year deal with improved terms at another club and for family reasons has decided to accept the financial package on offer.

Meantime David, 32, has declined an appearance-related contract and will seek to continue his involvement in the game elsewhere.

It has been club policy under Gary Hamilton not to offer players over 32 years of age more than a one year contract.

Gary said today “I wish to thank Andy and Dave for their services to the club. In my opinion they were two of the best pros I have ever worked with, both in my playing and management days. I’m gutted to lose the two of them but understand and respect their reasons and wish them all the best in the future. They will always be welcomed back to Mourneview.”
