PICKERING Town have confirmed the departures of several players from the club, following the confirmation of the season's end.

Midfielder Ryan Cooper, described as a "club legend" by Pickering who was "a massive inspiration to many and a real leader both on and off the pitch" is the most high-profile of those leaving.

Goalkeeper Harrison Foulkes returns to Hull City after the expiration of his loan spell.

Midfielders Alex Knox, Elliot Holmes, Adam Jones also depart, as do defenders Alex Laird and Lloyd Henderson.
