FOREST Green manager Ady Pennock has released Corby Moore and Tom Bender.

The duo are now free to look for new clubs after it was decided not to extend their current six-month deals.

Moore joined Forest Green from North American Soccer League outfit Indy Eleven in January after a successful trial.

He made one first team appearance, in a victory over Southport last season.

The former Southampton youngster has spent time on loan at Poole Town and Frome Town this season.

Bender, who has spent the final part of his stay at FGR on loan at National League South St Albans City, also leaves having made 11 appearances in all competitions for the club.

The Wales under-21 international joined the club in February and played a key part in the team’s late surge for a play-off place last season, starting in a crucial 4-2 away win over Gateshead.

A club spokesman said: "Everyone at Forest Green would like to thank the duo for their time spent at the club and wish them all of the best in their future careers."
