Three Things Missed This Week

As we head towards match day 30 of the 2017/18 National League season, here’s all the news you may have missed from our rival clubs this week.

Shots re-sign midfielder

Aldershot Town have completed a deal to re-sign Forest Green Rovers midfielder Fabien Robert.

The 29-year-old winger joined the Shots in September, but was sent back to his parent club after suffering a knee injury in December.

The former Lorient winger appeared 23 times for FGR last season as they were promoted via the play-offs, and will be in contention to face Ebbsfleet United on Saturday as Aldershot search for a third successive victory to close the gap on league leaders Macclesfield.

Blackpool forward completes loan move to Wrexham

Scott Quigley has joined Wrexham on loan for the remainder of the season, in a bid to boost the Welsh side’s push for promotion.

Blackpool signed Quigley in the summer for a fee that could rise to £50,000, but appearances have been hard to come by since his move and he has now gone in search of regular football.

Quigley scored eight goals for The New Saints last season as they won a sixth consecutive Welsh Premier League title, including a memorable strike in a Champions League qualification game.

Stelling to back Pool investment

Sky Sports Soccer Saturday host and Hartlepool United club president Jeff Stelling has stated he will support the club with his own cash, once new ownership has been found.

Pools have been in trouble for some time now, having been relegated from League Two last season, and are currently running a crowd-funding appeal in search of £200,000 for wages and costs this month to avoid administration.

Stelling expects a new owner to be in place in the near future, and is currently in discussions with a potential investor.

Stelling told BBC Tees: "We'll get the £200,000 and then we have a new investor or the Supporters Trust, I will certainly show the colour of my money at that stage because that is when we're going to need it.

"The Supporters Trust are set to hopefully step in should they be required, should no investor come forward with sufficient funds to take the club on.

"The Trust are prepared to go on and run the football club and I'll be part of that, if no investor is found."
