Around League Two

20 September 2018

As Mark Yates continues to prepare his squad for a tough trip to Lancashire to face Morecambe this Saturday, it’s also been a busy week for the other clubs in Sky Bet League Two.

We bring to you three stories you may have missed from around League Two this week.

Notts County Make Double Signing 

New County boss Harry Kewell has wasted no time in putting his own slant on his side this week, as the club announced the signings of Cedric Evina and Jamie Turley. 

Both players have already experienced playing under the Australian manager in their time with his previous club Crawley Town.

Left back Evina, 26, helped Doncaster Rovers win promotion to Sky Bet League One in the 2016/17 season and alongside centre back Turley, he’ll be hoping he can achieve the same feat at The County ground.

Tranmere Capture Williams 

Tranmere Rovers announced the signing of former Morecambe midfielder Ryan Williams this week.

Williams made over 60 appearances for the Shrimps in his two and a half years with the club, before he earned a move to Championship side Brentford.

He then had spells in Scotland, Canada and then Brazil before moving back to England with Tranmere on a short deal until January.

Manager Micky Mellon told the club website “We’re delighted that we are able to bring Ryan into the group until January.

“He’s a local lad who has played as high up as the Championship so he has experience in the EFL which will add to the squad.”

Grimsby Look For Alternative Stadium Site

Grimsby Town and North East Lincolnshire Council have agreed to look for new sites for The Mariner’s new community stadium.

The club have played at Blundell Park since 1898 but a move to a new home is fully in motion. The proposed site is called ‘Peaks Parkway’ however, after growing calls from supporters and the public for other areas to be considered the club will now work with the council to find a viable site. 

A statement on Grimsby’s website read, “Proposals for a multi-million-pound new community stadium in North East Lincolnshire continue to be discussed between the authority and Grimsby Town FC.
North East Lincolnshire Council and Grimsby Town have agreed to look at possible alternative sites to the original preferred option of partly Council-owned land at Peaks Parkway. 

That site was identified in two independent sequential appraisals commissioned separately by the Club and the Council as the best site for such a development.

However, since then circumstances have changed with developments proposed at Garth Lane, the Fish Docks and Freeman Street and most importantly the Council securing Government support for the ‘Town Deal’.”
