News Round Up

Hyde United have been wound up after failing to deflect a winding up order from the taxman. They had provided proof that funds to meet the debt would be forthcoming, but it was apparently not enough. The Conf North side played the Bulls in the FA Trophy in 2005, but only escaped relegation last season after another club was forcibly demoted. The club's board say they are investigating whether they can appeal the decision.

Northampton have signed Middlesboro defender John Johnson on a months loan. He had a month at Tranmere last season, including playing in the 2-2 draw at Edgar Street on Boxing Day. Burton have loaned teenage striker James Knowles to Harrogate for a month. Bristol Rovers have suspended midfielder David Pipe after he was charged in relation to an assualt in which a man suffered a broken skull.

Notts County have signed Wolves defender Daniel Jones until January on loan with a view to a permanent move. The 22 year old has spent most of the last two seasons out on loan at Northampton and Oldham, scoring for the Latics against the Bulls last October. Accrington have raised a total of £80,000 towards their £308,000 tax bill. They will have bucket collections at Anfield and Ewood Park on Saturday, and hope to arrange a friendly with Blackburn soon.

Torquay are set to offload some of their fringe players with Michael Brough mulling over a loan move to one of two Conference sides, and keeper Martin Rice finalising a permanent move to Truro.
