Jun Shimanuki and Junya Kimura have both decided to leave Mito's main squad. Both players never appeared in a league match, but played adequately in numerous exhibition matches.
Jun Shimanuki wishes to attend college, and will devote himself full time to that. He may continue to be on the roster as an amateur reserve player as other players have been.
Kimura Junya was on the roster for two years, after being promoted from the youth team. He will stay on the team as an assistant coach.
