Linux bash script to automatically delete old releases


I am searching for a developer who can write a bash script that automatically deletes old releases.

I have a folder with 2 subdirectories and a symlink named "current". The symlink "current" links to the latest release in the folder "releases", which currently is (as you can see on the screenshots) the folder "497". The script should be run by a cronjob and if executed delete all folders in the "releases" subdirectory except the one linked via the current symlink.
