Joe Jones

What's been happening in League Two over the last week?

Here is Pride of Nottingham's round-up of the biggest League Two news from the last seven days.

- Lincoln City manager Danny Cowley and his brother, assistant manager Nicky, have committed their future to Sincil Bank by signing new deals until 2022.

- Carlisle United have announced that Keith Curle will leave Brunton Park at the end of the season. The former Notts County boss has been in charge of the Cumbrians since September 2014.

- The 45th round of fixtures saw Luton Town clinch second place behind champions Accrington Stanley.

- Wycombe Wanderers were assured of third place, leaving Exeter City, Notts County, Coventry City, Lincoln City and Mansfield Town in the running for the four playoff places.

- At the bottom, Barnet sit two points adrift of safety, with Morecambe the only other team that could join Chesterfield in dropping to the National League.

- Also relating to Morecambe, the sale of the club to Bond Group Investments Limited was completed ahead of their relegation decider.

- EFL clubs are set to vote on the future of the matchday programme in June. Several of its members have questioned the requirement for clubs to offer a physical version of their product in an era of social media.

- Veteran midfielder Sam Saunders has signed a new one-year deal with Wycombe Wanderers after helping the club win automatic promotion to League One. The 34-year-old has made 27 appearances in all competitions this season.

- Defender Josh Doherty has signed a new two-year contract with Crawley Town. The 22-year-old, who has represented Northern Ireland at Under-21 level, has made 13 starts and a further four substitute appearances this season.

- Crewe Alexandra striker Charlie Kirk has signed a new three-year contract at Gresty Road. The 20-year-old academy graduate's existing deal was due to expire this June, but he is now signed up until the summer of 2021.

- Cambridge United have appointed interim boss Joe Dunne as their permanent head coach on a three-year contract. The ex-Colchester manager, 44, joined the U's as Richard Money's assistant in 2015 and also worked with Shaun Derry, who left the club in February.

- Crewe midfielder James Jones has signed a new two-year contract following a frustrating injury-hit campaign with the club. Jones, 22, has made just five appearances this season, and was not fit for action until late March.
