Ramsbottom United face a rebuild after Dominic Smalley, Phil Dean, Scott Burton and Grant Spencer have all confirmed that they have left the club.
In a series of tweets from the players, they confirm that they are moving on and see the right time to leave.
This follows the recent departure of joint bosses Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley.
As expected when a manager leaves one club for another there’s speculation linking some of the players with Salford City, however nothing has been confirmed from either party and as of yet none have been confirmed as being released from Ramsbottom.
Ramsbottom have strengthened since Jonno and Bernard’s departure however, with the return of Phil Edghill as assistant player-manager.
