Around League Two

6 February 2020

We take our weekly look around some of the other stories around Sky Bet League Two -

Pope In Hot Water Again

Port Vale striker Tom Pope has been accused by the Football Association of writing an alleged anti-semitic post last month.

He has been charged with an "aggravated breach" of FA Rule E3, which is defined as making "a reference, whether expressed or implied, to race and/or religion and/or ethnic origin".

It is also alleged that the post was "abusive", "insulting" and "improper" which "brought the game into disrepute.”

Worrall Agrees New Vale Deal

David Worrall has signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract with Port Vale that will keep him at the club 2022.
He has been an ever-present during John Askey’s first year in charge of The Valiants, after joining the Burslem outfit in the summer of 2017.

"He's still only 29,” Askey said.

"He shows a really good appetite for the game and he's been consistent with his performances.”

"He's still got years left in him. He's the one who very often sets us off with his energy to close down. Those are the type of players you want."

McCall Re-Joins Bradford

Stuart McCall has become Bradford City's manager for the third time, succeeding Gary Bowyer who parted company with The Bantams following a run of seven matches without a win.

The Scotsman, who used to play for the Yorkshire side, has been without a club since last March when he left Scunthorpe United.

Speaking to Bradford's official site, McCall stated -

"It is always difficult taking over from a manager who has lost his job, but I was desperate to return.

"We have to assess the squad quickly. I know some of the players from my previous spell here, so I’m looking forward to the challenge.

"The club is a very big one in this division and my job is to try and get us back to where we should be."

Trio Depart Oldham

Oldham Athletic have confirmed that they have allowed Harry Robinson, Sonhy Sefil and Gregor Zabret to leave the club with immediate effect.

Sefil, a 25-year-old centre-back has been on loan at non-league Northern Premier League Premier Division side Ashton United - appearing four times for The Latics.

Robinson made just a single appearance for the Boundary Park club, whilst Zabret made only two and returns to parent club Swansea City.
