Aldershot have resigned goalkeeper Nikki Bull after confirming his departure last week. He has signed a two year deal. Oxford have had to cancel a pre-season friendly with QPR because the ground is being used for a wedding as the stadium is not owned by the club.

Crewe are chasing Derby keeper Ben Hinchliffe, who has been released. The 19 year old had another 12 months left at Pride Park, but has been paid off. Peterboro mouthpiece Barry Fry is claiming goalie Joe Lewis is worth £4million. They paid £400,000 for him six months ago.
