L2 Round-up: Walsall sign former Sheffield United striker, Stevenage swoop for 20-year-old



The transfer deadline for Championship clubs is closing in, but League One and Two are set to roll on throughout August.

Clubs are still looking to add to their squad, with Walsall boosting their attacking options this afternoon, which is where we start our round-up.

Caolan Lavery

Walsall have added to their attacking options by signing former Sheffield United striker Caolan Lavery, as reported by the Express and Star.

He’s won promotion in each of his last three seasons, helping Sheffield United and Rotherham out of League One before joining up with Bury last season.

“I’m pleased to get Caolan in,” said manager Darrell Clarke. “He’s another piece of the jigsaw that we’re trying to put together here.”

Joel Rollinson

Stevenage had moved to add 20-year-old Joel Rollinson to their ranks, following their opening day defeat against Salford City.

Rollinson was released by Championship side Reading last season, having failed to make the grade with the Royals.

He appeared twice for them in the EFL Trophy and had a loan spell with Eastbourne Borough last season.

Championship Picks

Olufela Olomola

The Carlisle striker has reacted to new that his side are looking for another option up front, as reported by the News and Star.

The former Scunthorpe striker last 64 minutes of their opening day win against Crawley, but claims he would welcome additional competition.

“I would invite that,” Olomola said of transfer talk. “I want us to have a strong squad, players that will help the team do well.

Shay McCartan

Shay McCartan has been talking up his Bradford City side after their opening day draw with Cambridge.

The forward spent last season on loan with Lincoln City and admits that with the right work ethic, his Bradford side can repeat the Imps’ success.

“We still have good players here – there are some talented people,” said the Irishman. “If we can work together as a unit then promotion would definitely be on the cards.”
