Little departs Ashton Gate

Mark Little will depart Ashton Gate at the conclusion of his contract this summer, City can confirm.

The defender, signed from Peterborough United in 2014, made 102 appearances for the club and scored twice, including a goal at Wembley to cap a man of the match performance in the 2015 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final.

Head coach Lee Johnson was quick to pay tribute to the 28-year-old, who featured 34 times last season.

Johnson told bcfc.co.uk: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Mark over the last 15 months or so.

“He’s a superb character and personality, and I’d like to thank him for his effort, hard work and determination. We wish him every success in his future career.”

Meanwhile, club captain Aaron Wilbraham has been offered a new deal to extend his 20-year playing career that includes additional non-playing responsibilities.

Youngster Joe Morrell joins a host of development squad players in being offered a new contract.

Max O’Leary, Jojo Wollacott, Ash Harper, Cameron Pring, Connor Lemonheigh-Evans and Jake Andrews have already been offered extensions.

On-loan quartet Fabian Giefer (Schalke 04), Adam Matthews (Sunderland), David Cotterill (Birmingham City) and Tammy Abraham (Chelsea) have returned to their parent clubs.

All other first team players remain under contract for the 2017/18 season.
