WYCOMBE boss Gary Waddock has released six players but offered new deals to long-serving midfielder Matt Bloomfield and club captain Gareth Ainsworth.
Ainsworth, who turns 39 tomorrow, has been offered a player/coach role at Adams Park.
Bloomfield, alongside young midfield pair Jesse-Kewley Graham and Josh Scowen, is considering a one-year contract offer while highly-rated defender Anthony Stewart has yet to sign his two-year deal.
Promising left-back Charles Dunne has been offered a one-year contract extension to keep him at the club until 2014.
Ben Strevens, Anthony McNamee, Steve Arnold, Jason Mooney, John Halls and James Tunnicliffe must now search for new clubs after a meeting with Waddock this morning.
Strevens scored 11 goals in 83 appearances for Wanderers and tweeted: 'That't football. Leave on good terms, enjoyed the last 2 years. Made some great friendships, wish the club all the success it deserves.”
Midfielder McNamee, 28, initially joined on loan from MK Dons before making his switch permanent in January and Halls only made eight appearances since a summer switch from Aldershot.
Goalkeeper Arnold, 22, never made a professional appearance for Wanderers but was named Player of the Year after a loan spell at Hayes and Yeading this season while fellow stopper Mooney spent the season on loan at Oxford City.
Loanees Scott Donnelly, Chris Hackett, Gary Doherty, Craig Eastmond and Louis Laing have all returned to their parent clubs.
