Around League Two

26 December 2019

Here are some of the stories from around League Two this week -

Winchester Signs New Deal At Rovers

Carl Winchester has penned a new deal at Forest Green Rovers to keep him at the club until the summer of 2021.

The former Oldham Athletic and Cheltenham Town midfielder has made 77 appearances for the Greens, with 25 coming this term.

"We've got a young group of lads here doing well in the league and we've just got to keep that going," he said.

Marsh-Brown Leaves Newport

Keanu Marsh-Brown has left League Two side Newport County by mutual consent after having his contract terminated earlier this week.

The winger has played just 16 times in the league in 18 months at the club, scoring only one goal for The Exiles.


The 27-year-old started his career at Arsenal and has also played for Fulham, MK Dons, Dundee United, Oldham, Yeovil Town, Barnet, Forest Green Rovers and Dover.

Newport said in a statement: “We would like to wish Keanu all the best in the future and thank him for his efforts whilst at Rodney Parade.”

 

Orient’s Brill Out For Lengthy Spell 

Leyton Orient goalkeeper Dean Brill has suffered a serious hamstring injury that could keep him out for the rest of the season.

Brill picked up the injury in training last week and will be a big loss for the club, with him making 20 appearances in all competitions this campaign.

The 34-year-old was an ever-present last season as Leyton Orient won the National League title but now requires surgery.

"Obviously Dean's come out of the team in the last couple of weeks, but it is easy to forget the quality of the man" said O's interim manager Ross Embleton.
