Southend have made further redundancies at the club. Goalkeeper coach Lee Turner, kitman Steve Parmenter, and 'transfer advisor' Billy Jennings have all been axed to save money. Bradford are trialling former Millwall and Chelsea keeper Lenny Pidgley. He was released by Carlisle in the summer.
Ex-Bull Craig Mawson will play for Burnley reserves today. The 31 year old keeper effectively ended his playing career when he left Hyde to take a full time coaching role with the Clarets but a player shortage means he will be fielded. Rochdale boss Keith Hill has had to issue a statement denying that he accused referee Craig Pawson of bias in their weekend match with Bristol Rovers.
Rotherham will see the loan of Exodus Geoghaghon end this weekend with Ronnie Moore wanting a permanent January transfer, but Peterboro will have to lower their claimed £100,000 asking price. Forest Green are to revert to full time status with immediate effect, with new chairman Dale Vince funding the change.
Stevenage have signed Birmingham midfielder Jay O'Shea on a months loan. The 22 year old made the switch from Irish football 12 months ago but has made only three sub appearances for the Blues since. Amongst the FA Cup replays last night Tamworth won at Grimsby, and Dover beat Farnboro to set up a local derby with Gillingham.
Bury have rejected an approach from Lincoln for defender Ben Futcher. The former Imps player has played just four games for the Shakers this term.
