Darlington have had to cancel a money spinning friendly with Middlesboro as they cannot raise a team for the game. A series of injuries, and a reluctance of trialists to play for a side that can't hand out contracts, means they don't have the players available. Port Vale have allowed teenage striker James Lawrie to go on trial at Everton. If a move comes off they should be able to offer a contract to ex-Bull Kris Taylor.
Dagenham have received a six figure bid for striker Paul Benson from an unnamed League Two side. Shrewsbury striker Grant Holt is worth £450,000 to Norwich, according to local press reports. Barnet winger Albert Adomah is also in the Canaries' sights. Ex-Bull Stephen Jennings made his Motherwell debut in their 8-1 Europa League demolition of Albanian side Flamurtari.
Macclesfield have signed striker Matt Tipton on a 1 year deal. It is his third spell with the club after spending the last two seasons in non-league for Droylsden and Hyde. Notts County's appointment of Sven is starting to pay off, with their match with Torquay now to be shown live on Sky in October. They are also claimed to be chasing Sheff Utd striker Billy Sharp, whose 56 goals in 95 games for Scunthorpe saw him move to Bramall Lane for £2million.
Rotherham have confirmed talks with Blackpool over want away striker Rueben Reid. Former Bulls trialist Jacques Maghoma was forcibly substituted during Burton's 8-0 win over Rocester after he committed a tackle that left a Rocester player with severe bruising to his leg. Notts County have kicked Nottingham rugby club out of Meadow Lane. The tenant club are less than happy about the decision by the new owners of the football club, with the Magpies wanting a better pitch for this season.
Barnet are to loan striker Cliff Akurang to Rushden for the season. The 6ft 2in target man ended last season on loan at Weymouth.
