Workington have released top points scorer Carl Forber and three others after a disappointing start to the season.
The club have also released Tommy Brindle, Mark Hobson and Stephen Roper.
Chairman Dave Bowden said “It is clear that the plans we had at the start of the season have not worked and that is evident from recent performances on the pitch. Therefore in testing times financially this move is in the best interests of both the club and the players. We wish them all the best for the future.
