Around League Two

31 January 2019

We take a look around some of the stories from around League Two.....

Aspin Leaves Vale After Fifteen Months In Charge

Port Vale Manager Neil Aspin has quit his position at Vale Park after fifteen months in charge. 

The 53-year-old departs with just one win in his previous twelve games in all competitions and The Valliants currently sitting just six points above the relegation zone. 

Aspin replaced Michael Brown as Vale boss back in October 2017 with the club then twenty-second in England’s fourth tier. 

He secured the club's Football League status in his inaugural campaign in charge, but has since only led the team to eight victories from thirty matches scoring just twenty-seven goals along the way – the division's lowest. 

Vale are still yet to announce who will take over first-team proceedings and will wait to announce a decision until a permanent replacement is appointed. 


Manchester United Midfielder Joins Crawley On Loan 

Manchester United midfielder Matty Willock has joined League Two outfit Crawley Town on loan for the remainder of the season. 

The 22-year-old is yet to start for the first team at Old Trafford and had a previous loan at Scottish side St Mirren cut short after only fourteen games in December. 

Last season the youngster represented both St Johnstone and Dutch side FC Utrecht. 


Colchester Sign Wolves Talent On Permanent Deal 

Colchester United have re-signed Wolves midfielder Ben Stevenson on a two-and-a-half-year contract. 

The 21-year-old talent spent the second half of last season on loan with The U’s scoring two goals in thirteen appearances. 

The youngster joined Wolves from Coventry City back in 2014, but never made a senior appearance at Molineux and had a subsequent loan period with FC Jumilla in Spain.
