News Round-Up

Tamworth have signed released Cambridge defender Michael Wylde on a short term deal. The 26 year old had a loan spell with Telford before being released by the U's in January. Inverness boss Terry Butcher has questioned whether the city wants a football club after just 2,529 watched their draw with Kilmarnock on Wednesday, well down on their 4,000 average this term.

Lincoln have released striker Bradley Barraclough by mutual consent. The 23 year old ended last year on loan at Gainsborough, but an extension to the deal turned sour after the Conf North side accused the Imps of overcharging them for the player. Coventry's landlords ACL have released a statement saying the club now owes £1.347million in rent. They say the club have rejected an offer to slash rent to £300,000 a season, and are demanding that all arrears are written off.

The PFA have denied that they are trying to undermine the sale of Portsmouth to their Supporters Trust after the claim was made in Parliament by the local MP. PFA chief Gordon Taylor says they had to investigate why a late bid from Keith Harris was rejected by the Football League as they had to protect their members' interests. Exeter have been refused permission to wear their away kit in tomorrow's home game with Accrington. Boss Paul Tisdale wanted the change to try and reverse their abysmal home form.

Morecambe chairman Peter McGuigan says the club will continue with cheap ticket offers despite gates dropping back to 1,200. They attracted over 4,000 by offering free admission for the Dagenham game in January but were back to normal for Tuesday's win over Aldershot. Former Bull Dean Smith has been named Manager of the Month for January. Smith's Walsall won four of five games in the month, including a win over leaders Bournemouth.

Dartford have resigned striker Harry Crawford from Barnet on a months loan. The 21 year old has made three sub appearances for the Bees, scoring once, since leaving the Darts three weeks ago.
