HARRISON, N.J – Red Bull II has released to six players.

The USL Championship team announced Wednesday that it has declined options on goalkeepers Rashid Nuhu and Miguel Silva, defenders Jordan Scarlett, Allen Yanes and Janos Loebe and forward Amarildo de Souza. Nuhu and Loebe were members of the Fordham University men’s team that reached the quarterfinals of the 2017 NCAA Division I tournament.

The club also exercised options on six players. That included defenders Preston Kilwien, Roy Boateng and Edgardo Rito, midfielders Kyle Zajec and Omar Sowe and forward Sebastian Elney.

Midfielders Jared Stroud and Chris Lema are out of contract.

Earlier this week, defender Sean McSherry announced his retirement following his first professional season.

“As always, with all the hard work players put in during the year, it is hard to see players move on, but we are very thankful for their efforts and contributions,” head coach John Wolyniec said. “We hope their time here helps them in their future success.”

NYRB II (17-11-6) earned a playoff berth for the fifth consecutive season.
