CHERRIES boss Eddie Howe has offered new contracts to striker Steve Fletcher, utility man Shaun Cooper and winger Josh McQuoid.

However, Sammy Igoe, Scottie Guyett and Jeff Goulding were not offered fresh terms when Howe revealed his retained list earlier today.

Talks with striker Alan Connell are ongoing, while Warren Cummings, Lee Bradbury and Danny Hollands are entitled to new deals after triggering appearance-related clauses in their existing contracts.
