Stoke Release Handyside

FORMER Mariner Peter Handyside has been released by Stoke City, along with four other players, despite Stoke managing to stay in Division One this year. The former Scottish U-21 defender left Blundell Park after failing to command a regular first team place under then boss Lennie Lawrence.

Town boss Paul Groves is looking to bring in some new players over the summer, as well as persuading at least some of the out-of-contract squad members to put pen to paper on new deals for next season.

Central defender Handyside (28), as a free agent, is likely to be high on the Town boss' shopping list, after 10 highly successful years at Blundell Park, where he was consistently one of the best players in the squad.

Last season Groves managed to persuade two former players to return to Blundell Park (Boulding and Oster, the latter on loan), and like his mentor Alan Buckley, he appears to favour signing people he has worked with before.
