Craig Conway is one of 11 players to have been released by League Two side Salford City.

The former Rovers favourite joined the Ammies in October on an initial three-month deal which was extended in January through to the end of the season.

However, as the League Two season is set to be curtailed because of the coronavirus, with the 2019/20 campaign having been suspended since March, Salford have taken the decision to release their retained list.

That includes the names of 11 players who won’t be kept on by the League Two side who sat 10th in the table when the season was suspended.

The Scot, who turned 35 earlier this month, played 20 times in all for Graham Alexander’s side who saw their Checkatrade Trophy final against Portsmouth fall victim to the suspension.

Conway’s six-and-a-half year stay at Ewood Park came to an end last summer, his appearance on the final day of the 2019/20 campaign his 200th in Rovers colours after arriving from Cardiff City in January 2014.

He proved to be a popular figure with supporters, operating from the left wing from where he scored 22 times, and helped the club to promotion from League One in 2017/18.

Conway has played the last nine years of his career in England since leaving Dundee United in 2011 having started his career with Ayr.

He spent two-and-a-half years with Cardiff as well as a short loan spell with Brighton.

Released alongside  Conway is former Rovers youngster Josh Askew. The full back left Rovers in 2017 but made just one senior appearance for Salford, spending time on loan at Stockport and Curzon Ashton.

A club statement read: “We would like to thank each and every player for their considerable efforts on behalf of the club and extend our sincere best wishes for the future.”
