The 27 year-old winger’s contract was due to run until 30 June 2016.

Hammill made 49 appearances in the 2013/14 season, finishing top of the Club’s assist chart.

Under Chris Powell as manager, however, he made one start and one substitute appearance at the start of the 2014/15 season before leaving to join Rotherham United on loan, where he made four starts and 10 substitute appearances.

This season he has played 18 competitive minutes for the first team this season across two substitute appearances.

After discussions with Adam, we made the decision that this was the best option for everyone concerned. The timing gives Adam the chance to find himself another club and make a clean start in his career.

Mr Clibbens told the club's official website that the ruling is 'a real kick in the teeth' for the fans, adding it is they who have lost out in all of this.

It hardly needs saying, but Huddersfield Town is extremely disappointed with the outcome of the Football Disciplinary Commission. The Club was informed by the Football League just before the announcement and we expressed our feelings very clearly to them straight away.

This outcome means that our supporters, who were entirely innocent in the abandonment of the game and behaved impeccably despite attempts to encourage them to join in, have now been hit thanks to circumstances entirely out of their control. In the Club’s opinion, Huddersfield Town fans have been treated really poorly and that is not right.

Coming more than two months after the abandonment, it's a real kick in the teeth for our fans who have waited patiently and for the Club and will do nothing for the reputation and credibility of the football authorities in the eyes of supporters.

We will speak to the Football League again once the detailed findings of the FDC are available, but as things stand it looks like the real losers in this are Huddersfield Town fans.

A Football League commission has ruled that Blackpool do not have to compensate Huddersfield supporters following the abandonment of their match in May due to a pitch invasion.

The Football League had requested that the commission forces Blackpool to reimburse travelling Terriers fans. However, the commission has ruled against this.

Blackpool have been hit with a suspended three-point deduction by the commission. The Football Association fined the Tangerines £50,000 last week and decreed they would be made to play a competitive match behind closed doors next season if another game was to be disrupted by fans.
