Rhys Bennett, Joel Byrom, Alfie Potter, George Taft, Jack Thomas and Jimmy Spencer are all out of contract and released with immediate effect at the end of a disappointing season in which the club missed out on the play-offs, despite being pre-season title favourites.
Players still under contract at the club next season but made available for transfer are Paul Anderson, Will Atkinson, Calum Butcher, Zander Diamond, Paul Digby and Johnny Hunt.
Stags want to take up their option on Alex MacDonald so negotiations are underway to tie the midfielder to a new extended deal.
Players already under contract and retained for next season, and possibly beyond, are: Lee Angol, Mal Benning, CJ Hamilton, Conrad Logan, Jacob Mellis, David Mirfin, Bobby Olejnik, Krystian Pearce, Danny Rose, Omari Sterling-James and Hayden White.
Loanees Kane Hemmings (Oxford United), Adam King (Swansea City), Ricky Miller (Peterborough United) and Matt Penney (Sheffield Wednesday) have all returned to their parent clubs though Stags could always make moves for any of them over the summer if they are available and required.

It's a sad day leaving mansfield town after 5 years. It was always going to be hard this season to break into the team when I came back for pre season and didn't have a locker in the first team changing room and was left out of the team photo. But these things happen in football and I have had many more highs than lows, the club is only going one way and that is up with the chairman and Carolyn in charge. The fans have been amazing with me and I can't thank you enough for that. All the best

Mirfin has a long term injury. He can't simply be released. The club have to do the right thing by him.
I would have kept Rhys Bennett and Alfie Potter.
