LITTLETON manager Adam Parker has confirmed that no less than 17 players have left the club as a new dawn begins for the football club.

Parker took the job at Littleton earlier this month after being the Development Team boss at Pershore Town since May 2022.

Littleton are currently playing down in Division Two of the Midland Football League after being relegated from the Hellenic League Division One last season.

And after confirming a host of new signings, The Tonboys have this week revealed a list of those who have departed the club.

James Barnes, Zak Bennett, Mason Boyce, Harry Bradley, Jamie Bralee, Luke Brown, Josh Burford, Aidan Forrest, Cody Hall, Samie Hosic Jr, Henry Jinks, Ethan McKeown, Sam Rowbottom, Ethan Ruppenthal, George Skelton, Matt Turner and Rhys Warner will all leave. 

But that comes after Parker has signed a wealth of players from sides levels above where Littleton currently find themselves. 

The likes of Reece Day and James Batchelor have signed on dual-registration from Worcester City, Curtis Townley has joined from Pershore Town and Ben Espley and Adam Dankenbring have followed Parker from Pershore Town Development.

The new boss has also recruited Stourport Swifts' duo Ben Cowlishaw and Dan McCardle, whilst the likes of Josh Weatherby, Josh Baker and Ethan Delaney have also signed on for the season.

"Naturally when there is a managerial change at a football club, you go through a transitional period," said manager Parker.

"That comes through the form of players coming in and going out and also through a potential change of demands and playing styles.

"We've added a large number of very good players to our squad, players that we as a management team believe we can trust and players we strongly believe can turn the fortunes of Littleton around.

"We always knew when bringing in players that we would need to lose a few as well. Some of those decisions have been mutual, some maybe not so but what's important is that players are allowed to go and play football.

"We're not here to prevent anybody from not being able to play football. We wish every single player that has left well and thank them for their efforts in a Littleton shirt.

"For us, nothing changes and we continue to work tirelessly to create a side that can challenge in this league."

The mass shake-up at the club has affected them this season. They find themselves bottom of the table after nine defeats from 11 league matches.

Parker will be hoping to bed in his new players and turn things around, starting this weekend when they host Lane Head at Five Acres (2pm kick-off).
