Wrexham win

Relegation threatened Wrexham beat Southend Utd 2-0 in the LDV vans cup final at the millenium stadium. Ugarte and Ferguson were the goal scorers. I really hope this is the start of good things for the troubled Dragons.

Atherton rejects new contract

Veteran defender Peter Atherton is set to leave Bradford City after turning down a new deal at Valley Parade.
The 35-year-old joined the club in 2000 and has made 103 appearances.

Bradford boss Colin Todd told the Telegraph & Argus: "Peter was offered a contract but we haven't been able to come to any agreement.

"I've got my job to do at this club and people have to look elsewhere. We have limits to how far we can go and I have a budget to work with."


Newell not complacent about title

Luton manager Mike Newell says his side know there is still some work to be done to finish the season in style and ensure they are League One champions.
Newell told BBC Three Counties Radio: "We're not home and dry and the title is not done and dusted.

"It would have to take a minor miracle now, for us not to go up but we are not yet sure of winning the title.

"We're not tempting fate, and we'll try and get the win, next week, against Milton Keynes."

car dealer in fresh talks with Wrexham

Administrators acting on behalf of cash-strapped Wrexham Football Club have met owner Alex Hamilton on Friday with details of a bid to buy it.
They confirmed local car dealer Neville Dickens had made a bid to take over the club, which has debts of around 4m.

David Acland from administrators Begbies Traynor described the meeting as "constructive and productive".

Former club director Mr Dickens was unavailable for comment but Mr Acland said talks will continue next week.

"A number of topics were covered including the expression of interest from Neville Dickens," he said following the meeting in Manchester.

"It was agreed that discussions concerning the potential sale of the club would continue next week"

Speaking to the BBC News website earlier this week, Mr Acland said the interested party had "proof of funding" and he had met them previously.

We tend not to get our hopes up now

Simon Johnson, Wrexham Supporters' Trust

Mr Dickens was a Wrexham FC director in the 1980s and one of his garages is on land adjoining the Racecourse stadium.

A week ago, the administrators had dismissed speculation linking Mr Dickens with the club.

His business said he would not be available for comment for the whole of Friday.

Simon Johnson from the Wrexham Supporters' Trust said the offer was encouraging.

"I think Neville Dickens has said in the past that he would only do what's best for the club. Generally it's very encouraging," he said.

"I hope he can do a deal and it would be great to get a local person involved with the club."

However, he added: "We tend not to get our hopes up now".

Hewlit set to make Swindon exit

Midfielder Matt Hewlett looks likely to be the latest Swindon Town player to be leaving the club this summer.
Hewlett is out of contract this summer and was left out of the squad to face Bristol City on Wednesday.

Manager Andy King has hinted that the 29-year-old will not be part of his plans for the next campaign.

Steve Robinson, Steve Book and Alan Reeves have already been told they will not be offered new deals, although Reeves is expected to stay as a coach.

Brentford ground plans approaved
Brentford have been given the go-ahead to redevelop parts of Griffin Park in a scheme which will raise its capacity to 15,000 - the biggest for 20 years.
The plans, which were approved by the Isleworth and Brentford area planning committee, include putting a roof over the Ealing Road end for the first time.

The original application was turned down in December to allow for more talks with local residents.

The work will be funded by a grant from the Football Stadia Improvement Fund.

Hull and Luton go up

Hull secured back-to-back promotions despite being held by stubborn Swindon at the KC Stadium.
Peter Taylor's side wasted several good chances to win the match and striker Craig Fagan saw his last-minute penalty saved by Rhys Evans.

They also dominated the first half with Junior Lewis and Andy Dawson both spurning great opportunities to score.

But it mattered little when Tranmere only drew with Blackpool, booking Hull's passage to the Championship.

Luton Town will also be going to the Championship with the City !

Congratulations and good luck at the Kasey Stadium for next season !

Peterbrpugh go down

Peterborough were relegated at Bournemouth despite a rare away win courtesy of Calum Willock's goal.
Willock pounced in the first half with a glancing header following a cross from the left by Curtis Woodhouse.

For Bournemouth, it was another setback in their quest for a play-off place as they suffered their fifth successive home defeat.

Bournemouth had plenty of pressure and forced 15 corners as Barry Fry's men spent most of the match pegged back


I wish all the luck to Peterbrough for next season, and hopefully you can make a quick return.

Luton crowned champions

Luton Town have been crowned League One champions after coming from behind to beat Wrexham and Hull lost at Walsall.
But the visitors had to come from behind to win after Andy Holt's header had given Wrexham a first-half lead.

After the break, Curtis Davis met Kevin Nicholls' free-kick to score his first league goal and bring Luton level.

Fellow centre back Chris Coyne headed the winner seven minutes later and only the woodwork prevented Steve Howard from adding a third to cap a fine day.

Super Ugarte strikes again
Wrexham continue to hang on to League One status by their fingernails as Juan Ugarte led the way with a hat-trick in their must-win match at Stockport.
Oldham's loss at Chesterfield means they and MK Dons can still be overtaken by the Dragons next Saturday.

Ugarte's first came with his right foot after five minutes, then with his left and rounded things off with a header.

Carlos Edwards also weighed in, while Stuart Barlow grabbed already-relegated Stockport's consolation from close in.

Wrexham must now win at home against Brentford on Tuesday night to set up another nail-biter on the final day of the season next Saturday.

Sheffield make play-offs

Sheffield Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock has paid tribute to his players after they secured a place in the play-offs.
"It's been a difficult time, with a lot of pressure on young players, we've shown a bit of chararacter," Sturrock said after the 2-1 victory at Hull.

"The supporters haven't had much to sing about the last eight to 10 years. It's nice they have something to look forward to at the end of the season.

"This is an achievement, what happens next is in the lap of the gods."

Gulls earge to finish job

Torquay boss Leroy Rosenior has urged his side to finish the job off and earn the point they need against Colchester next week to secure League One safety.

"We played well and it was a great win," Rosenior told BBC Radio Devon after the 2-0 home win over Blackpool.

"It is now in our hands next week and we need to make sure we give ourselves chances for a point or for a win.

"The fans were fantastic, to get more than 5,000 is amazing, it was great to go out with a win for them."
