Around League Two

28 February 2019

It’s been another busy week around League Two.

As the weeks go on, the more dramatic the season becomes and it can be easy to miss the goings on around the league.

So, here’s three stories you may have missed from around League Two this week.


League Two Side Knocked Out Of Semi-Final

It’s been a successful season for Ryan Lowe’s Bury side but their chances of winning the Checkatrade Trophy came to an end on Tuesday night.

League One promotion chasers Portsmouth made the long trip to Lancashire for the semi-final and cruised to a 3-0 victory at Gigg Lane thanks to goals from former SilkmanGareth Evans, Oliver Hawkins and Ronan Curtis.


Notts County Owner Dismisses Administration Reports

Magpies owner Alan Hardy has said that financial problems with his company Paragon Interiors will not affect the League Two club.

Recently it was reported that Paragon was heading into administration but Hardy has said that it won’t affect Notts County.

In a statement he said: "Further to recent speculation about the financial performance of Paragon Interiors Group PLC and any impact this may have on Notts County Football Club, I want to assure supporters that the club will not be affected."


Stevenage Chairman Aims To Bring In New Investors

Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace has announced his plans to bring in internal investment to help the club reach the Championship in the upcoming years.

Wallace has been chairman of the club in 1999 and has been at the helm as Stevenage reached the Football League.

Wallace told the club’s website: “We are 20 minutes from London, we made a decent profit last year, we have a modern stadium and some great young players coming through that could be very valuable. Whether we sell 10% or a bigger stake depends on who it is and what their plans are.

"I have no intention of leaving just yet, but I would much rather enjoy some years of Stevenage being a bigger spending club, attracting new supporters and aiming for the Championship. To do that, we need additional funding.

"Our club is now ready for the next step, but the only way that can happen is with increased attendances. The only way to increase attendances is to drive the club to the top of League Two, then do the same in League One."
