News Round Up

Setanta's future looks grim after the FA pulled their rights for next season's Premier League coverage after the TV company missed their payment deadline. A large number of clubs in Scotland and the Conference are sweating over their budget plans for next season because of it with the likes of Crawley and Oxford admitting that the money is already spent on player contracts.

Carlisle have denied rumours that Shrewsbury are set to nick their defender Danny Livesey, saying the player would cost a lot of money if he were to leave. Bradford are to sign Macclesfield striker Gareth Evans on a two year deal for an undisclosed fee. Stafford need £50,000 in two weeks to avoid another threat of Administration. They owe the money on a temporary stand used at their ground last season.

Bournemouth have officially confirmed their new owners as The Murry Group. The group is led by Adam Murry, who had a number of previous bids for the club rejected as relations between him and former owner Paul Baker broke down. Exeter are the latest club to introduce a two-tier pricing system to cover Policing costs. Games against larger sides like Southampton and Charlton, and local rivals Yeovil and Bristol Rovers, will cost more on the gate to reflect the higher Police bills.
