News Round Up

Lincoln face a fight to sign trialist Neil Harvey. The Barbados international scored in an all-trialist Imps reserve side in the week, but Morecambe, Oldham, and Hartlepool have all shown interest in the 24 year old free agent who has scored 34 times for Retford in the Unibond League. Former Darlington Chief Exec Jon Sotnick, previously with Boston, is heading a group trying to buy Sheff Weds.

Mansfield fans have named former Kidderminster man John Mullins as their player of the year. Bradford have named winger Joe Colbeck as their player of the year. Halifax will offer creditors just 2.5p in the £ to settle their £2million debt. The offer means they will pay around £50,000 and form a new company. 16 pages of creditors include the Football Trust, Police, kit manufacturers, and coach companies.

Darlington boss Dave Penney has slammed negative fans: "The area has to get real and realise we've had a good season. It's eight years since this club got into the play-offs and we've managed to do it. It just seems that there's a negative feeling about the club and there has been for quite a bit." Shrewsbury have announced a small increase in match day prices, but are keeping season ticket prices the same as the current season.

Wrexham have axed 14 players following their relegation. Four, including Phil Bolland and Jeff Whitley, are released. Five more, including top scorer Michael Proctor and Trinidad international Silvio Spann, are transfer listed while five loan players will not be offered permanent deals.
