Sydney FC cut six players

11 April 2013 16:18

Sydney FC have announced the release of six players as they begin their preparations for the 2013/14 A-League season.

Having failed to qualify for the top-six playoffs on goal difference, Sydney coach Frank Farina has decided to allow former Australian internationals Paul Reid and Ben Griffiths to depart.

Croatian striker Kruno Lovrek, Nathan Sherlock, Trent McClenahan and Jarrod Kyle have also been told their services are no longer required.

Much-travelled central defender Griffiths - brother of Sydney FC striker Joel - made 18 appearances in the 2012/13 campaign, while former West Ham trainee McClenahan featured 12 times.

"It's an unfortunate part of football but we have decided not to offer new contracts to five players from the 2012/13 squad," Farina said.

"We have started the process of re-shaping the squad for the 2013/14 season and we need to make some tough decisions to allow ourselves the opportunity to do that.

"We are excited about some of the options before us and we are confident we can put together a squad the fans can be proud of.

"On behalf of Sydney FC, I'd like to thank the players for their efforts and wish them the best of luck in the future."

Sydney FC finished in seventh spot in the A-League table, having left their run to the finals too late after a horror start to the season that saw coach Ian Crook exit and replaced by Farina.
