FAN favourite Zac Butterworth is amongst several players who are leaving Cowdenbeath this summer.

The 23-year-old goalscoring winger is leaving Central Park after he accepted one of what the club described as "attractive offers" that were made to him.

In what will be a summer of change at the Blue Brazil, with Dougie Hill having taken over as manager, Butterworth will be joined in exiting the club by Lucas Berry, Scott Walker and Cieran Chalmers, as well as loan players Craig Hepburn, Adam MacDonald and Craig Donald.

Berry has completed a move to East of Scotland League, First Division outfit Camelon Juniors, after the clubs agreed a deal, ending a two-year stint with Cowden.

Goalkeeper Hepburn, midfielder MacDonald and centre back Donald will return to their parent clubs - St Johnstone, Motherwell and Dundee. 

David Allan, club secretary, said: "Zac’s impressive performances last season have not surprisingly caught the eye of many clubs, and he is taking up the opportunity to move on to a new stage of his career and we wish him well, and also warmly thank Lucas and Cieran for their efforts for the club."

In addition, goalkeeping coach, Rikki Jensen, and physiotherapist, Tam McIntyre, are also departing, whilst Hill has recruited Stirling Albion defender and captain, Paul McLean, to his management and coaching team, whilst also being registered as a player.

Mr Allan added: "Rikki and Tam have done a fine job for us over the last couple of seasons and we warmly thank them for all their efforts."

It is hoped that Hill will have his full backroom team, and some new additions to the playing squad, in place soon.
