Worcester City have confirmed three departing players ahead of the new season.

Following last season's title win and promotion, Jamie Insall, Kyonn Evans and Connor Gater have all chosen to retire from football.

The first retirement is that of Insall.

He finishes his career with his home town club, with 23 goals to his name having joined City shortly after the start of the 2023/24 campaign.

Insall's career has taken him to clubs such as Hibernian, East Fife, Connah's Quay, Halesowen and Redditch, and has even played in the qualifying stages of the Champions League, Europa League and UEFA Conference League, earning numerous league and cup titles and promotion throughout his career.

Aged 32, Insall is looking forward to welcoming a new child alongside his partner, and is expected to make some appearances on the side lines cheering City on.

Evans has also confirmed his retirement following his third stint at the club.

Despite an early season injury, Evans made 28 appearances and played a key role in the team's end of season success.

While the forward is best known for his ability to find the net, he has also impressed with his hold up play, flick ons and hard work across the front line, causing havoc for opposition centre backs in the process.

Aside from football, Evans is now looking to focus on his business, Worcester Glazing.

Gater is the third and final exit from the club, as he also hangs up his boots.

Gater retires with his name in the history books, having been a part of the City side that beat Coventry City in the 2014 FA Cup.

Last season he made 32 appearances and was recognised for his composure on the ball and intelligence in the midfield, forming a nifty partnership with Calvin Dinsley as the club won the league title.

Gater has some exciting plans on the horizon, with both a wedding and a baby in the not too distant future.
