Chester have signed forward Brendan Daniels on non-contract terms. The former Crewe winger or striker had a loan spell with the club last season, and had been on trial with Gateshead. Gloucester say they are in talks with their preferred candidate, claimed in the press to be ex-Aldershot boss Dean Holdsworth, over their vacant managerial post following David Mehew's dismissal over the weekend.
Lincoln boss Gary Simpson says the club have agreed in principle to extend the loan of keeper Nick Townsend from Birmingham to the end of the season, and they are also in talks with Crewe over an extension for defender Thierry Audel. Kidderminster Director John Davies has confirmed he has stepped down from the board. Davies owns the club's shirt sponsors, but says he is not walking away from the club.
