Around League Two

11 January 2019

Ahead of the weekend's action, we take a look at some of the stories circulating around League Two -


Dale Vince Set To Launch Winding-Up Petition At Bolton 

Forest Green Rovers chairman Dale Vince has not ruled out serving Championship side Bolton Wanderers with a winding up petition, following the dispute surrounding the transfer of striker Christian Doidge.

The Trotters are set to face a winding-up petition from HM Revenue & Customs and agency Stellar Football Limited. The agency have previously represented former Wanderers players such as Gary Madine, Tim Ream, Derik Osede and Rob Holding. 

Doidge, 26, initially joined Bolton on loan in August, with the deal to be made permanent in January. 

The Rovers striker will return to The New Lawn and will not leave for another club in January because FIFA rules do not allow a player to play for more than two teams in one season. 


Robins Midfielder Out For The Season 

Cheltenham Town midfielder Nigel Atangana will be out for up to nine months after rupturing his achilles tendon. 

The Glocestershire outfit are currently fighting for their lives in League Two with The Robins currently only seven points from safety and this latest setback does the club no favours ahead of their clash with high-flyers Tranmere Rovers on Saturday. 

The former Leyton Orient and Portsmouth player sustained the injury in Cheltenham’s 1-0 defeat at Crawley last week. 


Notts County Sign England Goalkeeper 

Notts County have announced the signing of Ryan Schofield on loan from Premier League outfit Huddersfield Town. 

The 19-year-old youngster is yet to make his first appearance for The Terriers under David Wagner, but recently signed a contract that will keep him at the John Smith's Stadium until 2020. 

The England U20 international has decided to seek game time at Meadow Lane, with the teenager staying with County until the end of the season.
