12 March 2013

We catch up on recent news emanating from League Two clubs

NEW MANAGER

York City named Nigel Worthington as their new manager at the beginning of last week just two days after the sacking of Gary Mills. The 51-year-old former Northern Ireland manager has previously been in charge at Blackpool, Norwich City and caretaker at Leeds United.

TRANSFERS

Accrington Stanley have signed striker Francis Jeffers on a deal until the end of the season and they could now play two former England internationals in attack with James Beattie already at the club. 32-year-old Jeffers, a former Everton, Arsenal and Motherwell forward, who was most recently on the books of Maltese side Floriana, made his debut as a substitute at Northampton on Saturday.

Goalkeeper John Sullivan has joined AFC Wimbledon on loan until the end of the season from Championship Charlton. He replaces namesake Neil Sullivan, who has been recalled from his loan at Kingsmeadow by parent club Doncaster Rovers. The 25-year-old made his debut for the League Two strugglers against York City on Saturday.

Young West Ham United striker Paul McCallum has joined Aldershot on loan until the end of the season. He has already enjoyed a successful loan spell at AFC Wimbledon this season, scoring four goals in nine games. The 19-year-old, who signed a new contract with the Hammers in January, tying him to the club until 2015, increases Andy Scott's attacking options in the club’s fight for Football League survival.

Barnet have signed midfielder Ross Jenkins on a month's loan from Championship side Watford. The 22-year-old was on loan at fellow League Two strugglers Plymouth earlier in the season where he made two appearances, scoring once.

Burton Albion midfielder Lee Bell has extended his contract at the Pirelli Stadium until the summer of 2014. The 29-year-old, previously at Crewe Alexander, had initially signed a one-year deal at the start of this season. Meanwhile Alex MacDonald has extended his initial one-month loan spell at Burton until the end of the season. The 22-year-old Burnley midfielder has made five appearances for the Brewers so far.

Former Crawley midfielder Scott Davies has moved to Oxford United on a deal until the end of the season. The 24-year-old, who began his career at Reading as a trainee and had loan spells at Aldershot, Wycombe and Bristol Rovers before joining Crawley in July 2011, left the Sussex side in January having made 32 appearances.

Notts County’s midfielder Joss Labadie has joined Torquay United on loan until the end of the season. The 22-year-old, who has made just six starts for County since joining from Tranmere Rovers last summer,   began his career as a trainee at West Brom and had loan spells at Shrewsbury, Cheltenham and at Prenton Park before joining the Merseyside club full time in the summer of 2010.

York City boss Nigel Worthington made Sheffield Wednesday keeper Arron Jameson his first signing after taking over at Bootham Crescent. The 23-year-old, who has made two first-team appearances for the Owls and agreed a two-year contract extension at Hillsborough last summer, has joined the Minstermen on an emergency loan.
