Boss Ady Pennock said: “They’re all eager to learn and I believe they are all capable of going on to claim a place in our starting XI before too long.

“I wish them every success.”

Goalkeeper Will Sykes and midfielder Sam Lawford will be released at the end of the season.

All five of those offered deals have been involved for the first team this season, though 18-year-old attacking midfielder Stevenson is the only one to have made an appearance.
