News Round-Up

Barnet have been given Football League permission to move ground to their Hive training complex. They will move to the Edgware site this summer, with a 5,100 capacity ground planned with a new 2,500 seater stand down one side. Cheltenham say they turned down an approach from the consortium that are set to buy Swindon. Chairman Paul Baker says he has also reversed his decision to quit at the end of the season.

Cambridge have made a double signing, taking on York striker Jamie Reed and Billericay defender Joe Anderson on deals to the end of the season. Reed, 25, joins on loan after one goal in 14 League appearances this season. Anderson, 23, joins on a short term deal after previous experience with Lincoln and Woking.

Barrow have signed veteran defender Efe Sodje on loan for a month from Bury. The 40 year old was previously due to join Macclesfield for the remainder of the season but the move collapsed prior to the transfer window closing. Telford are the side in senior English football with the longest run without a league win. They have now gone since October 9th, 125 days, after their win over Dartford - 11 days longer than Portsmouth, who will set a club record of ten straight losses if they lose at Hartlepool tonight.

Mansfield have been allowed to increase capacity at Field Mill for the second time this season. A further 200 supporters are now allowed into the stadium, taking total capacity over 8,000 but still 2,000 short of previous capability before crowd control and safety issues saw heavy cuts imposed.
