As negotiations continue two more players have made their mind up.
The experienced centre back Jamie McGovern has agreed to stay with Ards and has signed a new contract and Goalkeeper Brian Neeson has also extended his stay for another season.
Moving on will be club captain Johnny Taylor who was McGovern's centre back partner for most of last season. Johnny turned down the deal offered by the club and will be playing his football elsewhere next season. All at Ards thank Johnny for his service to the club and wish him well for the future.
