Under-20s boss Stephen Craigan is preparing for another big season with his youngsters.
The Northern Irishman has welcomed Liam Brown for Queens Park as he gets his squad ready for the 2017/18 Development League campaign.
Dylan Falconer, Barry Maguire, Peter Morrison, Adam Livingstone and Shea Gordon have all been retained for another year, and David Turnbull, Jordan Armstrong, James Scott, Jake Hastie and Allan Campbell all remain under contract.
Young midfielder Tom Fry and centre-forward Dylan Mackin have been released, whilst Kyle McDonald makes the step up from the under-17s.
And with another big year ahead, manager Stephen Craigan said: “It’s a big season for a lot of the young players with regards to taking the next step towards our first team.
“They have seen a lot of their teammates make their debut in the last couple of seasons so that has to be a motivating factor for them.
“I am going to push them and challenge them every day on and off the pitch to get the best out of them so they can reach their potential but of course the players have a huge role in being the best they can be.”
He added: “As always with under-20 players, some have left the squad and some have joined us, notably Liam Brown from Queens Park and Kyle McDonald has stepped up from our U17s. We welcome them to our squad.
“I’d also like to wish the lads who’ve left us all the best in their careers.
“Tom Fry and Dylan Mackin move on from the club but they have been terrific for me and they were model professionals during their time here at Fir Park.”
