Will Evans is one of the players released by Chesterfield.

The players will officially leave the club when their contracts expire at the end of the month.

"The club would like to thank the players for their services and wish them all the very best for the future,” the Spireites said in a statement.

Evans has been at the Blues for the last three years after signing in 2018 from Aldershot Town.

Boden returned for his second spell in January 2019. He is currently on loan at Torquay United.

Goalkeeper Coddington has not played for the Spireites since December 2019 following injury.

Yarney made a limited number of appearances this season, while experienced duo Buchanan and Smith did not feature from December onwards after not being in manager James Rowe’s plans.

Youngsters Rawson and Sharman were involved in the first-team squad at the start of the season under former manager John Pemberton but did not play under Rowe and were loaned out.

Town added exprienced goalkeeper Scott Loach, 33, to their ranks last week after his release by Barnet.

Liam Mandeville, who was set to be out of contract, signed a new one-year deal and the club has an option to extend his stay by another year if they wish.
