Written offers made to Cowan, Duxbury, Palmer and Bell.
I'll be very happy if just one out of Dux and Palmer are still with us next season, but I'm not confident of either.
think dux will be snapped up at some point. palmer's very calm and commanding (and a bit of a goalscorer too), so definitely hoping he stays. would be very disappointed to lose bell after a season too. still think he could develop into a proper player. broke 20 for the goals+assists and that's a pretty impressive start

I think keeping everyone except Warburton, Stephenson and Duxbury is a good result for a team promoted as champions, especially considering how many were out of contract at the end of the season.
The comment about Duxbury seems a bit off by the club, IMHO. They could've just said he's gone, no need to take a parting shot. It's a shame he's been disrespectful after County and Jim have invested so much, but never mind. He's a left back, we'll get someone else to tackle skinny wingers and boot the ball up the line.
Seems like Palmer and Bell will be announced later today, then that's it. I'm excited to see if we manage to sign Jamie Stott!
By the end of that 2 years he'll know all 1218 home supports personally!!!
I can understand that he's gone for the inflated wages and the security of a two-year deal, but expected him to go to a league club. I don't think it's a good move for him. Hope he doesn't get booed when we play them. He's been a good servant and just seems to have made a thick decision.
