Around League Two

6 September 2018


Kewell Takes The Reigns At Notts 


Newly appointed Notts County manager Harry Kewell says he "thrives on pressure" and expects to challenge for promotion -  despite Notts County being bottom of League Two after a winless start to the season. 

The Magpies have endured a difficult start to the campaign and this continued with defeat at Forest Green last Saturday. 

This is in sharp contrast to the Play-Off place that they earned last season, when they were defeated by Coventry City in the Semi-Final. 

The Australian will now work with the returning Paul Hart as Technical Director of Football, as Notts seek to get their season back on track. 

Hart, who leaves his assistant managerial role at Luton Town, had previously been Academy and Caretaker Manager at Meadow Lane in 2014-15 and chairman Alan Hardy believes the 65-year-old will aid Kewell’s cause. 


Concussion Questions For Flynn 

Newport County manager Mike Flynn has questioned the concussion protocols that will see Antoine Semenyo miss Saturday's game with Oldham Athletic. 

The 18 year old striker was concussed in the 3-0 Carabao Cup defeat at home to Oxford United on 28 August. 

The Football Associations standard rules dictate a six-day recovery period but Semenyohas to wait an additional six days as he is under 19. 

Semenyo turns 19 in January and would then be treated under standard return-to-play procedures. 

The Bristol City loan forward sat out the League Two win at Port Vale last weekend, but will not be able to return until the Checkatrade Trophy game at Swindon on Tuesday, 11 Septembe 

Semenyo's absence comes with Newport already missing Mark Harris for the trip to Boundary Park, with the Cardiff City loanee having been called up by Wales Under-21s. 


Cambridge Tie Down Midfielder 

Cambridge United had announced that midfield starlet Jevani Brown had signed a contract extension to keep him at The Abbey until 2020. 

Brown joined the club in August, having started his career as a trainee with Peterborough United. 

Jevani made 47 appearances during his first season with The Us and scored six goals for the club, becoming a firm fans-favourite.
