Scunthorpe United have released winger Jennison Myrie-Williams by mutual consent halfway through a two-year contract.

The 27-year-old joined the Iron from fellow League One side Port Vale last summer, where he scored 22 goals in 101 games, but has left Scunthorpe with 12 months left to run on his deal.

Myrie-Williams made just 15 appearances in League One last campaign, his last start coming last November in which he was sent off against his former club Vale.

The Lambeth-born wide man ended the season out on loan to League Two basement boys Tranmere Rovers.

Whilst on loan at Prenton Park, he made 18 appearances and netted three times. Despite his efforts, Rovers were relegated to the Conference after a 94-year stay in the Football League.

Myrie-Williams joins Callum Howe, Miguel LLera, Eddie Nolan, James Severn, Sam Slocombe, Matt Sparrow and Marcus Williams in being released by Scunthorpe United this summer.

Scunthorpe boss Mark Robins told the Scunthorpe Telegraph last month that he would be assessing the five players that finished the season out on loan.

“Some of the players that have been out on loan have been successful, but we will have conversations with them all about whether they will stay or be moving away.”

Ex-Brighton and Hove Albion man Matt Sparrow, who spent the remainder of last season on loan at Cheltenham Town, has already been deemed surplus to requirements at Glanford Park.

But Lyle Taylor, Terry Hawkridge and David Mirfin, who finished the season at Partick Thistle, Mansfield Town and Hartlepool respectively, are all contracted for another season.

Hartlepool United are said to be interested in the former Bristol City and Dundee United player, with manager Ronnie Moore said to be keen on bringing in at least two wingers to his team.

Ex-Scunthorpe manager Russ Wilcox brought the winger to North Lincolnshire to add "pace and power" and those attributes would certainly aid Hartlepool in their quest to fight at the top end of League Two next season.
