Forest Green have signed former Luton defender Ed Asafu-Adjaye on a one year deal. The 23 year old came through the Hatters youth team but never established himself as a first team regular, making 72 appearances in five years.

Kidderminster have signed defender Exodus Geoghaghon on a one year deal. The much travelled 6ft 5in former Darlington man has played for seven different sides in the last two years. Telford have invited former Port Vale keeper Chris Martin to pre-season training. The 21 year old was rumoured to be a target of the Bulls before James Bittner's arrival at Edgar Street.

Former Bulls trainee Tyler Weir has confirmed he will not be a Gloucester City player after turning down their contract offer prior to yesterday's deadline. He is expected to sign for Worcester. Cambridge are trialling released 6ft 9in Wycombe keeper Jason Mooney in pre-season. Manager Jez George says that a keeper is the only likely signing he will make after doing a string of early deals.

Wrexham signing Brett Ormerod is reported to have rejected moves to Accrington and League One Bury to sign a two year deal at the Racecourse Ground. Ormerod, 35, is also claimed to have been offered a £300 a week deal to stay at Blackpool.

The new Supporters Trust owners of Wycombe say that, even after conducting due dilligence on the business, they don't know the financial effect that Wasps rugby has on the football club.

Wasps are also due to be sold by owner Steve Hayes and are expected to leave Adams Park.

Wrexham say they have accepted a request from striker Jake Speight to leave the club. The former Bradford striker says he no longer wants to commute from his Sheffield home and wants a club closer to his base, with the Dragons saying they have accepted an offer from an unnamed Conference side.

Luton have appointed Carl Emberson as their first team development coach after he left a keeper coaching role at Bristol Rovers, where boss Paul Buckle also appointed him.

Southport are to sign Stockport Sports midfielder Aaron Chalmers for a small fee. The 21 year old was previously a pro with Oldham and Macclesfield. Macclesfield reported a turnover of £2.05million for the year to June 2011 at their AGM last night, notching their first profit since 1997 in the accounts. Shareholders voted in favour of reducing the number of directors needed to hold a board meeting from five to just two.
