He is one of four players not to be offered a new deal at Bloomfield Road - the others are Daniel Bogdanovic, Matt Hill and Stephen Husband.

It is the end of an era for Ormerod.

The hugely popular striker, who made Seasiders’ history by scoring in every division for the Seasiders during two spells at the club, is a long-time fans’ favourite.

He had a spell on loan at Rochdale earlier in the season.
