Hodgson Finally Departs Crawley

Richard Hodgson, who last week claimed the owners of Crawley were trying to force him out of the club, has departed after apparently agreeing a settlement on the remainder of his contract.

Hodgson, the former Darlington, Farnboro, Stevenage, and Cambridge player, refused an initial offer as "embarrasing", but is now expected to sign for a Conference South club ahead of the weekend. Crawley have made up for his departure by signing two on non-contract terms. Dorryl Profitt and Leonard Mendy have both impressed in trials and should both be in Saturday's squad.

In other news, Altrincham's cost-cutting exercise continues. Gary Williams has become the third player released. Altrincham started the season will a larger than anticipated squad due to long term injuries to several key players, but are now trimming the side with players returning.
