FA Cup hero Chib Chilaka heads Harrogate Town released list

He may have scored one of the greatest goals in Harrogate Town history, but Chib Chilaka is one of four players released by manager Simon Weaver.
Weaver has cited wanting “more movement up front” as the reason for Chilaka’s departure.
Chilaka scored 17 goals in total, but will be remembered for his legendary strike in the shock 1-0 FA Cup First Round victory at League Two Torquay United.
Luke Dean, Johnny Allan and goalkeeper Jose Da Veiga, who endured an injury-hit campaign, have also been released.
It means Weaver is on the hunt for a new striker and someone like recently released Gateshead striker Yemi Odubade may be a target – should he convince him to step down a level.  
Odubade would fit the bill if Weaver wants more movement.
Staying at Wetherby Road are goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray, Dave Merris, Dwayne Samuels, Shane Killock, Alan White, Matt Bloomer, Adam Nowakowski, Michael Woods, Adam Bolder and Paul Beesley.
Utility man Bloomer is the only player to remain from Weaver’s first game in charge of Harrogate at Corby Town in August 2009.
Since then, Bloomer has made 143 appearances for Town and has played in every position including goalkeeper.
