Around League Two

4 April 2019

Ahead of this weekend's Sky Bet League Two action, we take a closer look at some of the biggest stories from around the league this week.


Port Vale Close To Takeover

Port Vale look set to be under new ownership in the coming weeks after entering a “confidentiality and exclusivity” agreement with prospective new owners Carol and Kevin Shanahan.

The club has been up for sale since 2016, with current owner Norman Smurthwaite looking to sell the club that he took over in 2012.

After helping the Valiants out of administration with his takeover of the club alongside business partner Paul Wildes, Smurthwaite became sole owner of Vale in May 2013.


Luke McCullough Out For The Season

After suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury, Tranmere Rovers midfielder McCullough will miss the rest of the campaign.

This is a huge blow for a Tranmere side who are currently locked into the battle for the automatic promotion places.

On loan from Doncaster for the duration of this season, McCullough has been an integral part of the Rovers’ midfield this season, making 36 appearances.


Neufville Returns To West Ham

Vashon Neufville has returned to parent club West Ham after having his loan move to Newport County cut short after making just two appearances.

Neufville joined the Exiles on a loan move in January but has not done enough to convince manager Michael Flynn that he is worthy of a place in the side.

Despite this, one of his two appearances for Newport was in their historic F.A Cup giant killing of Premier League outfit Leicester City, in which Neufville won a crucial late penalty to help Newport progress.
