Peterborough United have released six players, including long-serving defender Gabriel Zakuani.

The Congolese centre-back has made more than 200 appearances in two spells for the club.

Shaun Brisley, Andrew Fox, Souleymane Coulibaly, Kyle Vassell and Jack Friend have also been allowed to leave while left-back Kgosi Ntlhe has rejected two new contracts and will move on.

Posh will be entitled to a compensation fee because of his age.

I would like to personally wish all those players that have been released by the Football Club well, but I would especially like to thank Gabi Zakuani, who has been a magnificent servant both on and off the pitch to Peterborough United Football Club.

I would like to wish him every success in furthering his career. I am sure he will have plenty of options.

Braintree Town manager Danny Cowley has resigned and taken over at fellow Conference side Lincoln City.

The PE teacher led the Essex part-timers to the play-offs this season before they eventually lost to Grimsby Town in the semi-finals.

Chairman Lee Harding admitted that he couldn't stand in Cowley's way.

It's a shame for us but, first of all, I would like to thank both Danny and Nicky for their efforts throughout their year at our club. What they have achieved with the players has been remarkable.

It seems the offer of a £500,000 playing budget and full time status has proved to be too good for them to turn down.

I think it is an incredibly brave decision on their parts, but I really do hope it works out for them - they are good people.

– Lee Harding, Braintree Town chairman
