News Round-Up


Telford have appointed their first team coach as their new manager. Gavin Cowan. From an initial list, the club interviewed five applicants for the post.

"I'm very optimistic about the club’s future and look forward to serving the club to the best of my abilities as I did when I was a proud captain and first team coach," said Cowan.

Cowan has already agreed a new deal with captain Shane Sutton.

Blyth Spartans have published their retained list. 18 players have been offered new deals.

Chester have been given a financial boost by a local entreprenure. Stuart Murphy has, reportedly, given a six figure sum to the club.

"Both myself and the CFU board have some really great ideas as to how we could spend the donated funds for the benefit of the club, focusing on improving the infrastructure and maximising revenue streams," said Murphy.

"Dare I say it, but there are some really exciting things in the pipeline and fans have every right to be excited with what the future may hold."

Darlington have released five players including Gary Brown and Leon Scott. They had made 186 and 222 appearances for the Quakers respectively.

York City have decided not to look for a senior goalkeeper as back up for Adam Bartlett who kept goal for Hereford United several seasons ago.

Instead they have promoted youngster Ryan Whitley from their youth set-up.

"We are really happy with Adam Bartlett and, if there was an emergency, you can always look to the loan market and bring in somebody," said manager Martin Grey.

"I don’t see a purpose at this level to pay a lump of money to somebody who will sit on the bench and I would rather have a kid on there." 

There may not be many new faces at Kidderminster next season. 13 players are already under contract and another six have been offered contracts including former Hereford United mid-fielder James McQuilken.
