The days, hours and minutes are ticking away on the current pre-season, with the big kick off looming large for League Two teams.
There’s been no let-up in the frantic transfer action, with a number of clubs signing, re-signing or missing out on players today. We start our round-up in the university city of Cambridge where there has been joy and disappointment today.
The U’s have secured the services of former Barnsley man George Maris after it appeared he might leave the club, as reported by Cambridge Live.
Maris’s contract had expired leaving him free to talk to other clubs, but he’s now penned a new deal keeping him at the Abbey Stadium until 2021.
Colin Calderwood’s side won’t be signing Wes Hoolahan though. He’s been on trial with the League Two side, but is now departing the club to pursue an opportunity overseas.
Winger Lloyd Isgrove has joined Swindon Town, penning a one-year deal with the club, as revealed by their official site.
He began his career with Southampton, but struggled to make an impression on the first team. He later moved to Barnsley but found himself on the fringes there also.
A loan spell with Portsmouth didn’t bring regular football either, so he’s naturally delighted to have been given a chance elsewhere.
“I’m obviously delighted to sign now,” he said.
“I’ve been here for two weeks and I’ve really enjoyed it. I’m delighted to get it over the line and I can’t wait to get started on Saturday.”
Macclesfield Town have pulled off something of a coup by securing former Celtic and Brentford winger Theo Archibald on a one-year deal, as revealed by their official site.
The 21-year-old has been capped by Scotland at Under 21 level and spent time on loan in League Two with Forest Green Rovers last season.
He’s also enjoyed a loan spell with Albion Rovers in the Scottish League One, playing 14 times.
Oldham Athletic have snapped up striker Kielen Adams for a second time, as reported by the BBC.
The 18-year-old spent time with the Latics as a youngster, before moving to Bradford City.
He failed to make a single appearance for the Bantams and rejoins the Boundary Park outfit on a one-year deal with an option for a second.
