16 May 2015

Matt Kilgallon and Lee Williamson will extend their stay at Ewood Park by a further year as the club confirms it's 2015 retained list.

The experienced pair amassed over 70 appearances between them last season, earning another year at the club.

Kilgallon had a standout second half of the campaign, playing a huge role as Rovers enjoyed their run to the last eight of the FA Cup, whilst Williamson has been a consistant and regular member in the centre of midfield.

The Under-21s enjoyed a successful cup campaign of their own as they reached the final of the U21 Premier League Cup, and their captain David Carson has also penned a new one-year deal.

Ryan Crump, Jack Doyle, Mark Edgar, Anton Forrester, Sam Joel, Josh King, Sam Lavelle, Darragh Lenihan, Hyuga Tanner, Connor Thomson and Luke Wall have all been offered new deals from 1st July 2015, whilst Chris Taylor and Luke Varney, who are both aged over 24, are free to talk to other clubs at the expiration of their contracts.

As previously confirmed, David Dunn will end his association with the club, as will goalkeeper Paul Robinson, who leaves after seven years and 202 appearances for Rovers.

Also departing are Bradley Bauress, Kellen Daly, Adrian Edo, Sam Jones, Paulo Jorge, George Pierce, Cameron Scott, Yann Songo'o and Callum Williams.

The club would like to place on record their thanks to each player for their hard work and dedication during their time at Ewood Park and wish them all the best for the future.
