Around League Two

8 August 2019

The latest news from around Sky Bet League Two after the first round of fixtures last weekend…

Salford City Win Their First Ever Football League Game

Mani Dieseruvwe scored twice as Salford beat Stevenage 2-0 in their first outing in the EFL.

Salford won promotion from the National League last season and made easy work of their opening game in the next level up.

The club are part-owned by the ‘Class of 92’ and Paul Scholes watched on at Moor Lane as Dieseruvwa scored either side of half time to take the three points.

Leyton Orient Pay Tribute To Late Manager Justin Edinburgh

Leyton Orient honoured the memory of Edinburgh as they won their first game back in the EFL 1-0 against Cheltenham.

Before kick-off there was two flags celebrating Edinburgh’s life carried around the pitch, followed by a minute silence.

The winning goal was scored by Josh Wright - who was Edinburgh’s last signing from the club. Wright held up a shirt to pay tribute to the late manager.

Marc Richards Joins Cambridge United

The 37-year-old striker has joined Cambridge United on a contract until January. The frontman was a free agent after 18 months at Swindon Town.

Richards joins Cambridge United after League Two rivals Port Vale targeted the striker in January, but the deal fell through.

Richards played for Vale in 2007 and scored 75 goals in five years, but now is focusing on scoring gaols at Cambridge.

Bristol City Keeper Joins Forest Green On Loan

Jojo Wollacott has joined Forest Green on a season long loan with an option of a recall in January.

This is a step up for Wollacott after playing for National League South side Truro City last season. The 22-year-old also made featured on the bench for Bristol City last season after injuries to second and third choice keepers.

With game time sparse at Ashton Gate, Wollacott joins Forest Green with hope to get minutes between the sticks.
