News Round-Up

The Conference are investigating after some York players held up a "RIP Luton" sign during their open-top bus parade celebrating promotion yesterday. Cambridge have signed Tamworth keeper Jonathan Hedge on a two year deal. The 23 year old was a regular for the Lambs last season and also made two appearances for the England C team.

Kettering's Supporters Trust says the club faces a 'huge task' to avoid Administration. Acting chairman George Rolls, who still does not officially own the club, says the club is saveable but needs support from the fans during the summer. The Conference are reported to have asked for a six-figure bond to guarantee that the club will be able to complete the forthcoming season. Macclesfield are reported to be set for a boardroom reshuffle. Chairman Mike Rance and Vice Chairman Andy Scott are both reported to have resigned, with Scott leaving immediately. New manager Steve King says he is unaware of any changes.

Conference newcomers Dartford have raised admission prices by £3 following their promotion from Conf South. It will now cost £15 for adults to watch games at Princes Park. Season tickets are just £8 cheaper than at Edgar Street. Histon are on the verge of another crisis after three board members quit, with one saying he was lied to about the financial state of the club. Departing chief executive Gordon Boateng says he was kept in the dark about the true state of the club and urged the Supporters Trust, currently being formed, to take control of the club. 

Telford have offered striker Adam Proudlock an improved contract in a bid to keep him at the club. The 31 year old missed most of the current season with a broken ankle. Shrewsbury have set up a vegetable garden next to their training pitch to grow produce for their club kitchen. Oldham say they are facing a £100,000 a year bill after being told there is a shortfall in their pension scheme. They are already facing a £250,000 drop in TV income due to the reduced contract revenue coming in for the coming season.
