News Round-Up

Macclesfield have signed midfielders Kieran Murtagh, from Cambridge, and former Togo international Euloge Ahodikpe on one year deals. Murtagh, 23, played just seven times for the U's and spent the second half of last season in Conf South, while the nomadic Ahodikpe has played in France, Turkey, and Hungary in recent seasons. The Silkmen have also 'resurrected' their Early Bird season ticket sales period after slow initial sales.

Newport have ended talks about new deals with the last two of their out of contract players. Winger Romone Rose is expected to sign for another Conference side after spending the second half of last season with the Exiles on non-contract terms, while Jake Reid is trialling with Telford. Exiles winger Felino Jardim is expected to reach agreement over a termination to the remainder of his two year deal after a disappointing first year.

Former Bull Phil Gulliver has left Corby Town less than a month after agreeing a new contract for next season. The defender has opted to drop two divisions and join King's Lynn instead with Corby boss Ian Sampson admitting the player was only ever on non-contract terms. Former Bulls keeper Glyn Thompson is in talks with Worcester after leaving Newport in the summer. The 31 year old had spent five years at the club, playing close to 150 games.

Alfreton have signed Kidderminster midfielder Dan Bradley on a two year deal for an undisclosed fee. The 20 year old joins the club where his father is the chairman. The Reds have also signed keeper Phil Barnes from Gainsborough. The 33 year old has signed a one year deal after racking up over 250 League appearances for the likes of Blackpool and Grimsby.

Tamworth are reported to have signed former Premier League midfielder Lee Hendrie. The veteran told Redditch fans he has signed for the Lambs after finishing last season at the Worcestershire side following his release from Kidderminster. Cambridge are reported to be still willing to sign York midfielder Adriano Moke despite the player failing a fitness test. The U's are negotiating lesser terms, including a reduction or removal of the need for a fee for the 22 year old.

Forest Green say that they have definitely concluded their summer transfer business for the second time after signing Tamworth utility man Paul Green on a two year deal.
