Doncaster have announced the departure of seven players from their 2019 squad.

The Dons fell short in their push for promotion to the Championship after reaching the play-offs.

And head coach Richard Horne will analyse his options for next year following a string of exits.

Hooker Kyle Kesik departs having been with the club since 2009, while Jordan Howden, Connor Bower and Connor Scott will also head for pastures new.

Richared Owen, Callum Ogden and Stefanos Bastas complete the list of departures.

Rangi Chase is set to remain with the club after agreeing a new deal.

Horne said: “I would like to thank the boys for all their efforts not only during my time at the club but also some having done so for a significant period of time.

“We wish them all the best and I’m sure the fans will look forward to potentially welcoming a few back albeit in different colours next season.

“It’s always a time of year where decisions have to be made and with recruitment well underway for next season, we’re already looking forward to a positive campaign.”
