A number of first team regulars will be saying goodbye to Stark's Park as John McGlynn works on his squad for next season.

Along with veteran defender Iain Davidson, strikers Gozie Ugwu and Manny Duku will not be offered an extension to their one-season contracts.

Ugwu scored five goals in 21 appearances with Duku hitting 14 in 33 games as both spent just one year in Kirkcaldy.

Midfielder Dan Armstrong had been offered an extension to his contract but has decided to move on from the club he joined in November 2018, shortly after McGlynn and his assistant Paul Smith had returned to Stark’s Park.

In total he had made 69 appearances and scored 16 goals.

Also bringing an end to their time at Rovers are defender Fernandy Mendy and striker Jack Smith.

Defender Frankie Musonda, who impressed during his 26 appearances his maiden season in Kirkcaldy despite a stop-start campaign due to injury, has signed a contract extension, whilst out of contract midfielders Brad Spencer and Regan H endry are mulling over new deals which have been offered.

Finally, loan players Timmy Abraham, Kai Kennedy, Nathan Cooney, Adam King and Jamie Gullan have all returned to their parent clubs.

Joining their team mates for pre-season training on June 11 will be new singings defenders Christophe Berra and Tom Lang, and forwards Dario Zanatta and James Keatings.
