DANNY Galbraith, Matty Dixon, Callum Rzonca and Robbie McDaid are among those deemed surplus to requirements by York City boss Gary Mills.

The quartet were left behind for the 2-1 FA Trophy triumph at Harlow and have joined Ben Barber and on-loan winger Justin Johnson, who haven’t even been considered for reserve action under Mills, on the unwanted list.

Seven-goal top scorer Richard Brodie, meanwhile, parted company with the Minstermen last week and has since joined National League North Boston United.

Following the 3-1 North Riding Cup defeat at Whitby, Mills confirmed that certain players would not feature under him again and be banished to training with the youth team.

Championship outfit Brighton had been rumoured to be monitoring Callum Rzonca’s progress this season, but he is now being shown the exit door at Bootham Crescent with Mills saying: “Everybody has seen the 16 I selected for this game (at Harlow) and the most important thing is I have a squad of players I can trust who are mentally strong enough to go forward in the next 18 league games and in the Trophy and achieve what we need to do.

“I’ve got to get as much right as I can from now until the end of the season and, if that means some players won’t be involved because I don’t think they are right for us, then that’s what will happen. That’s not a major issue - it’s just me doing my job.

“You have got to have players who you know what you will get from them and that’s why I brought Dan Parslow back. I’ve had a chat with the players concerned and they will go out on loan or leave the club and go to another side.

“I have circulated their names around the leagues and we’ll see if anybody is interested in them.”

Striker Scott Fenwick has survived the proposed cull, however, despite scoring just one tap-in during 19 outings since a summer move from Hartlepool. He was used as a 55th-minute substitute at Harlow, with Mills adding: “Scotty has worked hard in training and I don’t have any issues with him. When he’s not been in the side, he gets on with his job and he put a ball over the top for Amari (Morgan-Smith), which is what he’s all about, so I was pleased with him when he went on.”
