Ebbsfleet United have released Luke Rooney, Mark Gower and Jamie Turner.

Rooney and Gower's short contracts had expired while Turner had been with the club on a non-contract basis.

All three players were brought to the Fleet by Jamie Day, who was sacked last month.

Former Gills winger Rooney, 24, started six times under Day but he wasn't selected for the final game of the season, when Daryl McMahon stepped in as interim manager.

McMahon, who's since been named as Day's permanent successor, spent 18 minutes on the pitch with Turner when the goalkeeper made the only appearance of his second Fleet spell.

Turner came off the bench during the 5-1 defeat to Basingstoke on December 28 after Brandon Hall was sent off with the score at 2-1.

Meanwhile, 36-year-old Gower, the former Southend, Swansea and Charlton player, was restricted to three substitute appearances in Ebbsfleet colours.
