News Round-Up

Darlington boss Mark Cooper says he will not quit the club after last night's 3-0 home defeat to part-timers Southport dropped his side to 17th in the Conference table. The game was watched by a season-low gate, who booed the team off at full time. Shrewsbury defender Reuben Hazell believes his season is over after picking up knee damage in Saturday's win over Torquay. Gulls forward Rene Howe was sent off for the challenge than did the damage.

Swindon have signed Huddersfield defender Liam Ridehaugh on a months loan. The 20 year old left back hasn't played for the Terriers this season but made 26 appearances last term. Notts County chairman Ray Trew is now the sole owner of the club after reaching a deal with the other two shareholders, who will take Trew's stake in Nottingham rugby club as a result.

York have warned that the failure of a planning application to build a new stadium, submitted this week, could result in the club ending up homeless and playing part-time. The Minstermen have vastly scaled back plans down to a 6,000 capacity arena with a £2million loan from the Football Stadium Improvement Fund due to be repaid in 12 months. Without the new stadium, they would have to sell their current home to settle the debt.

Dagenham are expected to sign QPR forward Troy Hewitt on loan. The 21 year old has made only one sub appearance for the Premier League newcomers after a March switch from the Ryman League. The Daggers had trialled Southend striker Harry Crawford earlier in the week. Dorset Police are reported to be examining footage of Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell's on-pitch rant at fans a couple of weeks ago to determine whether there was a public order or football-related offence committed.

Wrexham have reached an 'amicable' agreement with Greene King to end their sponsorship deal that threatened to derail the takeover of the club by the Supporters Trust. The brewers say that as the new club owners do not have ownership of the ground they cannot enforce the terms of the deal.
